Education organizations have unique requirements for their fire, security and communications systems. Protecting the safety of your students and faculty is your number one priority, but financial resources are often stretched thin. With our specialized experience and array of fire and life safety products and services, we can help you find the solutions to fit your needs. For K-12, our portfolio can be packaged and scaled to meet any budget and any size challenge. In higher education, we can help you address the security complexities of operating in a multi-faceted environment that can bring any number of life safety challenges to your door.

The realities of a changed world demand more sophisticated security systems. We can design solutions that layer levels of protection with a multi-technology, integrated approach that won’t increase your management workload.  An integrated system automates a chain of responses to a fire or security event: camera recordings, emergency notification and public address, lockdowns, and contact with first responders. With safety platforms merged together in an integrated way, our solutions simplify building operations and reduce your administrative burden.

Whether you’re considering new construction, upgrades or retrofits, we can be your single-source provider for multiple fire and life safety solutions that can be integrated and networked for granularity of information. When it comes to keeping your equipment operating at its best, our specialists are dispatched from 130 company-owned offices nationwide, ready for testing and inspection, preventive maintenance, or 24/7 emergency service.
