Need for an All-Digital PA System
With an emphasis on technology, Bossier Schools had the vision to replace their mass notification system as they upgraded their IP infrastructure. They searched for an all-digital PA/Intercom system and bell scheduler that could alert all students with complete campus coverage.
Bossier found their budget-friendly mass notification solution in Carina, made by Wahsega, as their affordable PA system, intercom, and bell scheduler.

What’s on your mind?
For school administrators keen on ensuring the utmost safety for their students and staff, the dilemma often revolves around: should we opt for panic buttons or call buttons? This article delves into their differences, benefits, and the evolving security landscape in educational institutions.
Outdoor speakers are crucial for school PA systems, providing effective emergency alerts and enhancing campus-wide communication. Key features to seek in outdoor speakers include weatherproof housing, UV resistance, and clear audio. These elements improve safety, engagement, and connectivity in the school environment.
Alyssa’s Law, requiring Texas public schools to install panic alarms, was signed by Governor Abbott on June 13, 2023. Schools can apply for state grants to fund these systems, and Wahsega is available to assist with the implementation process.
