“Shooter Detection Systems is a practical, proactive solution that upgrades active shooter plans to mitigate modern day threats. We are extremely proud to be the first school in New Hampshire to have this technology.”
Hooksett, NH – As a part of their multi-faceted approach to address to the active shooter threat, Hooksett School District is the first school district in the state of New Hampshire to install gunshot detection in all of their school buildings. After a careful review of available gunshot detection technologies, the Hooksett School Board and Superintendent selected The Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System due to its proven performance history at other schools across the country its zero-false alert history and its proven, certified technology integrations with the schools’ current security systems.
ENE Systems of Bow, NH is the Authorized Shooter Detection Systems dealer selected to perform the installation. ENE worked with the school to integrate gunshot detection alerts with additional technologies in order to maximize the incident awareness that gunshot detection provides. In reaction to gunshots, the public address system will automatically alert building occupants, and the video surveillance system will instantly pull live video feed of the incident, giving first responders within the school a visual of the situation in real time. Guardian’s mapping software, displaying the three Hooksett sites and gunshot sensor locations, is monitored both in the school’s security center and at Hooksett PD dispatch.
