As we watch the news we will have been horrified when the attack on a school in Connecticut, this is why some locations by deploying digital posters used for emergency notifications.

We were all horrified to learn, that a lone gunman (whose mother was a teacher at the school) walked into the school and started shooting at children killing them instantly. The stories of bravery from the children were heart felt, with one child telling their teacher, “that the class was safe, because they knew karate.” However several weeks on, we have to look at how schools and education facilities of protecting the children in their care.

By using these digital posters in schools and all other educational facilities allows teachers and pupils to stay in charge at all times.

This role call can then be checked against pupils and teachers onsite, so that when the incident is resolved everyone is accounted for.
