    Why do I need a Lockdown System?

    The Responsible Person in any education, health or public building has a lot more to fear these days. From gun and knife crime to organised terror attacks. There are many reasons you may need to implement a partial or total lockdown.

    The rise in gang crime and "postcode wars" has brought knives and guns into areas of every day life that we never thought possible in Essex. Nowhere is completely safe and the possibility of someone entering your school grounds and causing harm is very real.

    Being able to turn a key and sound an alert is the fastest way to get your people safe, should the worst happen.

    Not just schools but:
    • Hospitals
    • Shopping centres
    • and other large public buildings
    All have been identified as "soft targets" for terror attacks. The nature of these attacks is evolving, as seen in London and other cities. Any Responsible Person tasked with safeguarding large numbers of the community needs an evacuation plan. And a Lockdown Alarm to kick it into action!

    What is a Lockdown Alert Alarm?

    Terror attacks, knife and gun crimes are often in the news. And schools have been asking how they can safeguard their staff and pupils.

    Our Fire Alarms For Schools expert says:
    During a fire, you need everyone out as quickly and safely as possible. The familiar alarm tells pupils, staff and visitors to follow the practised procedure. Everyone needs to exit the building.

    A Lockdown situation is the polar opposite. If a threat presents itself, the Lockdown Alert Alarm will prompt staff and occupants of the building to go into Lockdown procedures. These may include locking classroom doors and getting into hiding positions.
    The good news is, you may not need a brand new system installed. Blake's Lockdown Alarms can integrate with some existing Fire Alarms.
