Emergency Messaging and Mass Notification
Student and faculty safety is one of the most important issues
facing the education system today. This safety relates to events
that occur on campus as well as events that occur in the
surrounding community. School safety can be linked to adverse
weather conditions like tornadoes or hurricanes as well as
incidents involving weapons or criminals on or near campuses.
While items like natural disasters, school shootings, and hostage
scenarios are a community’s greatest fear, as recent events have
illustrated, the need to have mechanisms in place to protect
the student population when a threat is present has never been
greater.
Unfortunately, no amount of preparedness can prevent all
emergency situations, but GLOBALCOM as part of an overall
administration emergency plan, goes above and beyond in
effectively allowing administrators and school personnel to
appropriately respond during crises.
The most critical component of any emergency plan is communication. Getting an alert and instruction to
those affected is the first step to ensuring their safety. GLOBALCOM uses a web based interface that allows
administrators and teachers with access the ability to launch predefined weather or safety related as well as
ad-hoc messages through the schools paging system to alert students and faculty of the emergency situation
facing the school. In addition to these messages, GLOBALCOM can also deliver additional pre-recorded and
stored information including instructions based on the school’s emergency plan and directions to areas of safety
like designated tornado shelters or other secured areas.
Additionally, GLOBALCOM offers schools additional
means to communicate with students, faculty, and parents
when appropriate. GLOBALCOM can incorporate optional
visual paging displays. These displays can provide visual
confirmation of the alert for hearing impaired individuals
but also reinforces the alert and gives students and faculty
a secondary source of information in case they were not
paying attention to the audio page. System administrators
also have the ability to send SMS messages to students,
faculty, and parents that are registered in the GLOBALCOM
system with the same alerts so that everyone knows what
is going on and panic can be avoided and student safety
can be maximized.
Finally, GLOBALCOM includes an in-classroom safety feature that allows a teacher to alert the administrators
or safety personnel that a dangerous or emergency situation has arisen in a classroom through a non-verbal
network message ensuring the safety of all present in that classroom. GLOBALCOM is a comprehensive
communication solution designed to provide instant and effective communication campus wide no matter what
the emergency situation is ensuring that students and faculty on campus as well as parents off campus can
remain informed and safe.

User-Friendly Software and Remote Access
GLOBALCOM features an easy-to-use
software interface, which enables bell
schedules, recorded messages, and
system settings to be easily created and
updated. System settings and functions
can be set in advance including volume
levels, daily schedules, tones, and page/
announcement zones. When changes are
needed, they can be saved as a new event,
permanently replace other schedules, or
implemented for special one-time uses.
• Entirely web-browser based solution allows many settings to be remotely accessed (quickly assist new or substitute teachers)
• Remotely trigger special incident messages like weather alerts, shelter-in-place directives, or evacuation messages
• Ensure student safety whether the district office is ten feet or ten miles away
Bell and Event Scheduling
The daily bell schedule is an integral part of any school’s
communication system needs.
•
•
•
•
Create and manage all schedules via a user-friendly web interface with multiple schedules active simultaneously in different zones
Schedule templates can be used to create weekly, monthly, or yearly bell schedules
Synchronizing GLOBALCOM’s clock to your school’s centralized time system.
Utilize tone, voice, or music .wav files for scheduled announcements (e.g. play different tones for different schedules or school “spirit songs” to announce pep rallies or special events)

Diagnostics and Reporting Features
Knowing that the system is functioning properly BEFORE you
need to broadcast an emergency message is absolutely vital.
GLOBALCOM includes a comprehensive supervision feature
so virtually every system component is tested and monitored
regularly for proper performance.
•
•
•
Daily testing is performed on all system components including microphone paging stations, signal processing equipment, power amplifiers, and loudspeakers
A “fault” status alert is generated and reported to the system’s server with detailed information as to the type of fault, the location, and time/duration of the fault
Minimizes costly troubleshooting time
System Intelligibility
Engaged
Somewhat
Not
Engaged Engaged
The ability for students to properly hear and understand what
teachers are saying in the classroom is essential. More than just
a factor of volume, the quality of the audio presented is critical
to student comprehension and safety. GLOBALCOM provides
the highest quality audio of any educational sound system on the
market. This improved level of student understanding and system
intelligibility is possible because of the unique use of dedicated
structured wiring. In utilizing the full bandwidth available for the
audio signals, GLOBALCOM is noticeably more intelligible
compared to low bandwidth telephone-based systems.

Amplified Learning® / Classroom Sound Reinforcement
Expanding class sizes make it vital for a teacher’s voice to be evenly distributed throughout the classroom,
allowing all students to clearly hear the lessons. This feature is known as Amplified Learning® or Sound
Reinforcement and is an increasingly valuable teaching tool that engages students and reduces teacher
voice fatigue. Amplified Learning not only improves student focus, comprehension, and retention, but it helps
eliminate distractions as well.
•
•
•
•
•
Sound reinforcement modules easily manage all classroom audio sources to keep technology-rich lessons running smoothly
Infrared microphones are easy to use, comfortable to carry, and impervious to cross-talk (interference) between rooms
Web-based interface simplifies installation and use, and it eliminates external knobs/switches to prevent tampering and inadvertent system changes
Teachers can easily manage master volume, muting, and other audio functions
Audio from any room with a sound reinforcement module can be used as a program source for any other zone in the school
