Operation Security Blanket:

In response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Modern Systems’ president and founder, David Morris, decided to launch Operation Security Blanket. OSB is a program that allowed area schools and head starts to receive donated panic alarms. After hearing local school personnel talk about school safety being a priority – even on tight budgets- David realized he could help and began to call other companies throughout the US to do the same with their own local area schools.

The program was then found in May 2013 by Murray Electric System and it was decided that as a company we would follow in Modern Systems’ footsteps by picking up the program and using it to help our local community and area schools. Murray Electric installed a panic alarm, or duress alarm, system in the schools at no cost, directly or indirectly to the school systems. The panic buttons were installed in multiple locations throughout each school systems’ front office. When pressed, the button will send a silent alarm to a Murray Electric System monitoring station, which will immediately call 911, as well as send a text alert out to all faculty and staff alerting them of a threat on campus. This allows staff to then prepare to follow the schools emergency evacuation plan as set by the school board. The system can be used in all types of emergency situations, not just those in which someone may be wielding a gun. If there is any situation on campus in which they would normally contact authorities, the panic button can be used. Having silent alarms in place allows someone to contact the authorities in situations in which they otherwise may not be able to.

Stickers with the Operation Security Blanket logo will be placed on the entrances of all the schools to serve as a reminder that they have security measures in place to help protect students, and minimize response time from authorities.

Murray Electric System is proud to a partner with Operation Security Blanket and proud to bring the program to your school system.
