EARS Plc. – Walkie Talkies for Schools/Colleges And Universities

Two Way Radio Hire For Schools

Over the past 20 years, EARS has provided walkie-talkie radio hire to many schools, colleges and universities. Two-way radios, or walkie-walkies as they are sometimes referred to, ensure effective communication at every level of your staff and across the premises.

Coordination among teachers throughout the school day is necessary for organising students and ensuring that nobody is missing. Student safety is highly important and using a two-way radios to keep your team of teachers informed about student movements is useful from the very start of the day.

During fire drills, your entire team will need to keep students flowing in an orderly formation and direct them in tandem with other members of your team. Having a walkie talkies system for your school will significantly reduce the stress of these large-scale events. Hiring this equipment from EARS Plc., an industry leader in the UK for many years, will give your school staff enhanced communications abilities that can benefit many aspects of the school, college, and university environment.

Teachers need walkie talkies to communicate effectively

Even when students are arriving and leaving your school in the morning and afternoon, having staff on the property equipped with a two-way radio hire equipment will allow you to make sure that your pupils are safe. As a convenient and more discrete supplement to a school public address system, the walkie talkies can significantly improve classroom to office communications. Naturally, field trips and events pose a particularly stressful problem for teachers and event staff who need to ensure the safety and orderly conduct of their students.

Placing walkie talkies in the hands of teachers who are trained in their use will significantly reduce the likelihood of any troubles or hazards from befalling your students. Sporting and other major events at your school, college or university also require efficient communications for organising the course of the game as well as keeping the crowd happy and under control. Using a walkie talkie hire to provide security and game officials with an effective means of interacting and coordinating is a game-changing idea. They become invaluable for covering Sports Grounds and Sports fixtures which are normally a distance from the main buildings and can be a life saver should you require to alert medical staff or health and safety at a moment’s notice .

Setting the priorities for communication in your school must come right from the top. If you are a manager of a school, college or university and need to improve how communication flows in your organisation then consider a two-way radio system that is designed specifically for schools. Hiring walkie talkies for your school through EARS Plc. will ensure that you find the best solution for the communication demands of the academic environment.

Why Consider Walkie Talkies For Schools?

School walkie talkies are a simple, convenient, and reliable means of keeping lines of communication among your staff open. In a school, they can be used to benefit your teams of teachers, administrative staff, cleaners, school security staff, and groundskeepers.

Since walkie talkie hires work well both inside and outside of buildings, without the signal loss of mobile phones, they are an ideal choice for a school or university environment. At larger school or university events and assemblies, they can be effectively used by your team to keep control of crowds and organise students efficiently. They can even come in handy when your drama department is planning a major event and needs to communicate rapidly and effectively behind the scenes.

Technical Considerations For Walkie Talkie Hire

Each Teacher or Team can have their own two way radio channel

One essential aspect of walkie talkie hire that provides a significant benefit for school environments is the ability for each team on your staff to have its own channel. This way, members of your staff can direct their messages to the right people without unnecessarily interrupting the rest of your school as with a public address system. With up to ninety-nine channels available on a standard two-way radio hire, you can divide your teams up into any imaginable communications configurations and even have dedicated emergency channels.

For discrete communications among your school security team, there are also optional earpieces for hire. These are also useful for groundskeeping staff who need to keep their hands free and still keep in touch with other members of your team.

Two-way radios can be in-ear and discreet

Since you will need to keep your radios functioning throughout the length of the school day, having sufficient spare batteries and chargers is an important thing to consider when looking for the best walkie talkies for schools.

Depending on the needs of your academic environment, EARS Plc. can set up anything from a simple back to back simplex system to more complex arrangements for specific needs.

EARS Plc. also offers noise-cancelling headsets and loud hailers to ensure that loud crowds of students will not drown out important messages during larger events and assemblies.
