Funding for Public Safety, ERCES, and Indoor Wireless Connectivity:
Why You Should Request Funding

Violent events continue to take place in and around schools within the United States. These horrendous acts have clearly highlighted the need for school districts to assess their indoor wireless connectivity for each building and structure as a key element within their school safety and response plans.

Most safety response plans include lockdown procedures and the designation of safe spaces and processes, yet it will likely have a limited effect if personnel, students, and security teams don’t have the ability to immediately communicate with police and response personnel during an active emergency due to poor indoor signal.

Funding these type of technologies can sometimes be difficult, but there are many programs, grants and resources available to assist in addressing these needs.
