Alabaster City Schools ensuring faculty, staff and students are safe

ALABASTER, Ala. (WBRC) – Alabaster City Schools is making a big investment in new technology aimed at keeping children safe at school after the Parkland School Massacre in Florida.


Alabaster Superintendent Dr. Wayne Vickers said it would help ensure all faculty staff and students are safe on campus. In addition to the crisis alert system, they have added vape detectors, improved their camera system, and added another SRO officer. We know in a crisis every second matters now, and if someone sees something wrong on campus, they can do something.


“If I’m in the parking lot and I see something that doesn’t look right as every employee in our school system custodian, teacher, paraprofessional, bus driver, they can actually do something with this button,” Vickers said.
