To help keep staff and students safe, effective communication is critical. Coordinating staff & students, pick-up and drop-off, field trips, fire drills, dealing with trespassers, and quickly handling injuries and accidents are just some of the day-to-day challenges.

There are many communication options with varying costs and effectiveness, however, commercial radio stands out as the most effective and practical way to coordinate and communicate in any school environment.
