I also think about who would test it? And how often? If it doesn’t work when you need it, it would be a waste. So frequent testing would be a necessity

I worked in a psychiatric hospital residential tea teaching social studies and of course there were panic buttons on every wall.

We have the call button and no phones. It’s the first school I’ve worked in that hasn’t had classroom phones in decades.
