As part of its School’s Out campaign, ADI has produced an on-demand webinar entitled ‘Making the Grade on School Fire and Security Safety’ in which experts from Linian, Safety Technology International and Connectix address a few key strategies and solutions required to design and implement an effective, round-the-clock school fire and security safety strategy.
A key driver of the increase in school fire and security safety concerns is the ‘extended schools programme’, which provides a range of activities and services outside of the regular school day to help better meet the needs of its pupils and the wider community. While beneficial to an educational institution’s local community, it presents the challenge of ensuring that the school is always safe and secure.
Speakers in the 45-minute webinar include:
