ATTENTION NEW JERSEY SCHOOL DISTRICTS:
On February 6, 2019, NJ Governor Phil Murphy signed P.L. 2019, c. 33, Alyssa’s Law, requiring that each public elementary and secondary school building in the State be equipped with a panic alarm to alert law enforcement in the event of a school security emergency. Alyssa’s Law provides that funding for compliance with the panic alarm requirement would be made available through the proceeds of general obligation bonds issued under the Securing Our Children’s Future Bond Act, P.L. 2018, C. 119. Alyssa’s Law further requires that the New Jersey Schools Development Authority adopt rules to establish a program to effectuate the purposes of Alyssa’s Law.
The New Jersey School Development Association has made $75 million in funding available to public schools for safety-related technology improvements to their facilities.
Please contact PMC to learn how we can assist your district with accessing these funds and becoming compliant with the State’s Emergency Response initiative. We will help you leverage your existing technology investments as the foundation of your technology roadmap to begin integrating your Smartphones, Two-Way Radios, Video Surveillance and Access Control systems into a seamless Security Platform to enhance safety in your district, and greatly reduce response times by First Responders in an emergency.
PMC Wireless and Motorola Solutions recently held a webinar specifically designed to further inform New Jersey School districts about Alyssa’s Law, the grant funding, and technology solutions available to improve school safety and comply with the Law. If you missed the webinar and you’d like view a recording of our NJ Alyssa’s Law Grant Funding Solutions Webinar, please send our NJ Schools Team an email and we’ll email you a link to watch the webinar on your own time.
Time is running out to get your applications in and we are here to help make this process easier for you.
Our Integrated Communication Solutions Enhance School Safety and Improve Efficiency
We know that your district is constantly being pressed to boost student safety and increase staff efficiency on an ever-shrinking budget. Our instant, reliable communication solutions excel at helping keep students and staff safer, tracking bus fleets accurately, and improving overall efficiency – with flexible options you can afford.
Improve Operational Efficiency
Boost productivity and cut costs with real-time mobile connectivity.
When you need to communicate quickly and easily with all school personnel, the best way is over two-way radio. With the touch of a button, you securely link multiple teams across the district. Deliver voice, data and video information to staff instantly, wherever they go, from the school principal to the campus electrician.
Motorola’s next-generation solutions ensure staff can respond rapidly and work efficiently wherever they go. With durable devices and school-specific systems, you’ll have technology that connects directly to your needs.
Bus Fleet Tracking and Management
Coordinate your fleet with exceptional efficiency.
Need to contact a student on the bus, redirect a vehicle or make sure your fleet is adhering to its route? The integrated GPS on Motorola’s radios helps you monitor their location and manage logistics. Now schools can track each vehicle to improve security, increase student safety and effectively respond to emergencies, weather events, traffic and more.
Features like “emergency call buttons” alert dispatch when drivers need assistance. Remote monitoring lets you listen in when a driver is unable to respond. Data applications inspect buses, check fuel usage, track upkeep and inform you if bus doors are left open or drivers are on duty. We designed our fleet management solutions to keep your drivers connected with schools efficiently and safely, wherever they go.
Communicate with Added Intelligence
Discover how improved safety, increased personnel accountability and realized cost-savings with MOTOTRBO digital radios integrated with GPS and the WAVE smartphone app.
Operations-critical apps beyond the fleet also enhance safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs. Security personnel can be automatically notified if a school door or gate is breached and remotely open or close it. Maintenance can turn lights on or off, control sprinklers and handle a multitude of other tasks with their two-way radios.
