Life Safety & Security Systems for Education Applications
Education facilities face a wide range of life safety and security threats, from fires to intruders. Our team at Wilson Fire Equipment is the education industry’s trusted authority for life-safety and security systems. We help design, install, service, monitor, and maintain systems to help you protect our community’s most valuable assets: students and faculty that make learning happen.
We understand that budgetary and time constraints can make installing new security and life safety systems difficult. Our experts work with you to offer turnkey, cost-effective solutions for your facility.
Life safety systems are essential for protecting those within your facility. Did you know an average of 3,230 fires occurred in educational facilities each year between 2014 and 2018 according to a report from the NFPA? What’s more, two-thirds of those fires occurred between 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. when the building was most likely to be occupied with students and staff. We design fire alarm systems and life-safety systems to help you protect your education facility.
However, fires and natural disasters aren’t the only dangers your school faces. WFE also provides high-quality intruder alarms, access control, and mass-notification systems to help keep schools safe. These advanced security systems are designed and installed specifically to inhibit unauthorized visitors, and the dangers they bring to your facility.
With these solutions, we help your school be prepared for fires and other emergencies. We help you alert students and faculty and provide clear instructions, in real time, for what to do as the critical event develops. Different situations often call for different actions. For example, a fire may necessitate a school-wide evacuation, while an intruder may mean staying put and barricading the doors. We provide intercom systems, audio/visual communication systems, and other layered solutions to help your school communicate each step, by specific event, clearly and intelligibly.
Our experts can also help you design mass notification systems to inform parents, responders, and school personnel of situations as they happen. We set up systems to provide automatic emails, text messages, calls, and other communication methods to provide immediate, real-time information to all involved parties.
WFE provides emergency protection systems for educational campuses of all types:
- Elementary schools
- Middle schools
- High schools
- Vocational schools
- University Campus
When you need cutting-edge security and life-safety systems, we invite you to work with our team for complete, reliable and customized protection.
