The past weeks of our changing world has brought to the forefront the need for a growing supply of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). Our Health workers on the front lines have been severely undersupplied in some areas and are working in dangerous conditions.

It is our goal to help with this fight in whatever way we can right now. As a design manufacturer of video and GPS based solutions for the school bus and law enforcement markets, 247 has certain engineering and manufacturing capabilities that we have been able to mobilize against the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we have been working diligently to design and produce protective equipment; equipment that is now ready to be donated to the front lines.

We are proud to be able to offer these to our partners free of charge while our supply lasts. These can be used for donation to your local hospitals that may be in need, first responders or in your own facilities. We look to you, our valued customers and dealer partners to point us in the right direction where these materials will be put to the best use.

Some areas have been hit harder than others and some have been overlooked in the rush to provide PPE. Unfortunately, we do not have a crystal ball to see how long this pandemic will last but for now, we hope to be of some help.

We are sharing the plans for this face shield also for use if you have the equipment and material to be able to make these in your facilities. Download the file for the plans and specifications here to be used with a laser cutter.

If you know of an organization that will put these face shields to use please reach out and let us know. Someone will be in contact with you shortly and let’s talk about how we can make a difference together.

Stay safe and healthy and we will all get through it.

As a designer-manufacturer of video and GPS-based solutions for the school bus and law enforcement markets, 247 has certain engineering and manufacturing capabilities that they have been able to mobilize against the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19, 247 has been working diligently to design and produce personal protective equipment (PPE); equipment that is now ready to be donated to the front lines.

As a community leader, Quang Nguyen, President and CEO of both 247Security and Toronto MicroElectronics [TME], saw a connection between the need and his companies’ abilities. The result has been a mobilization of both engineering and manufacturing to produce first, face shields for use in environments where medical and educational personnel need protection. Mr. Nguyen states,“We are fortunate to be able to help during this trying period. Hospitals are struggling to find supplies at the right price and we have the capacity to answer the call. We are making thousands of face shields to donate to various school districts and hospitals. We are also making our designs available freely to those with laser cutters and appropriate production facilities to join us in the production effort to provide as many face shields to the front lines as possible.”

Healthcare workers across the country are in desperate need of additional personal protective equipment so that they can continue to courageously perform their duties on the front lines. In addition to shields, 247Security will have a form-fitting mask design ready for production shortly. Designs for full body protective gear, with air purification functionality are in the testing stage. Robert Scott, SVP sums up his company’s motivations. “Both Quang and I have daughters who are MD’s in large urban hospitals and on the front lines. We feel first-hand the anxiety of knowing doctors, nurses, and all caregivers need protection to stay healthy and do their jobs. They are true heroes. We simply want to help as best we can.”

247Security is calling on the industries they serve to contact them to assist in the distribution of these essential PPE’s. School districts and law enforcement agencies may need PPE’s for their own use or may want to acquire for distribution within their communities to hospitals, retirement homes and others in need.

South Bend buses now with 247Security Stop-Arm Cameras

All South Bend school buses now have stop arm cameras to catch violators

SOUTH BEND — South Bend students were back on the buses Thursday, and all of those buses now have stop arm cameras.

We got a look at how they work. The cameras not only have a wide scope covering four lanes, but also have night vision. Whenever the buses are on, the cameras are recording.

South Bend School Corporation is making it clear, passing a school bus with its stop arms out will not be tolerated.
Some buses had cameras last year, but this school year every bus is equipped and rolling.

“We are committed to student safety,” said Todd Cummings, South Bend Schools superintendent. “We are committed to monitoring the stop arm violations. We ask folks when they see the red lights stop, turn on your hazards and let our students get on the bus.”

Cummings says the district made sure the cameras were ready for Thursday.

Three kids were killed in Fulton County last year, crossing a highway to get on their bus. That tragedy was the extra push to make sure something like that doesn’t happen here.

“The tragedies happened in our area,” said Rene Sanchez, chief operations officer. “So this was a really easy way for us to make sure that the urgency was there. On the part of the budgeting, on the part the installation, so that way we know that we will be able to keep our students safe.”

Sanchez says it’s a regular occurrence to have drivers pass a bus when the stop arms are out.

“Usually it’s not necessarily the people driving behind the buses, it’s the people who are coming towards the bus,” said Sanchez. “We will be able to zoom in on whatever it is that we are going to need to zoom in on, to be able to identify the vehicle that is passing by.”

Cummings says the cameras are a big step in protecting students, but it’s not the only change the district has made to reduce the risks.

“We are also rerouting our buses away from busy intersections, ensuring curb side pickup for all of our students,” said Cummings.

Any violations caught on camera will be sent directly to the police, where they can get a hold of the driver.
With drivers now constantly on camera, the district hopes people will pay attention and think twice before trying to pass a bus.

Reformatting Hard Drives

• Winter and Summer breaks are a great time to reformat your hard drives and start the new year with fresh recording space you want to. Follow these steps for a simple reformat.
• Swap drives of the SAME type (HDD or DHD) into a different DVR. Once the unit is powered up it will reformat the drive automatically. Ex. Remove the drive from bus #1 and put into bus #2, from #2 into #3 and so on.
• The units should all go into record mode when swapped. This is also a great way to test to make sure the drives are in good condition.
