  • Administrators
  • Custodial Staff
  • Car Dismissal Team
  • Security Team
  • Athletics

Key uses of Walkie Talkies in the Educational Environment include:

  • Campus Security
  • Fire Drill Coordination

Are you trying to add two way radios to your existing fleet?  If the answer is yes, we will need some information off of your current walkie talkies to ensure your new walkie talkies are compatible with your existing fleet.  

What is your budget?  We help schools pick the best two way radios for their needs while being respectful of your budget.  Our most expensive walkie talkie isn't the best walkie talkie for most of our customers.  Twowayradiocenter.com will not oversell you, our goal is to get as many two way radios in your hands as possible within your budget parameters.  

How large is your campus?  A College has different needs than a local elementary school.  We'll ask for your address, look at your campus on Google Maps and make some recommendations.  

Are there any specific needs you're trying to meet using walkie talkies?  Two way radios have a number of customizable features we add when requested.  Our goal is to keep your walkie talkies as simple to use as we can while ensuring the two way radios function as you need them too.
