Ingersoll Rand Presents ‘Safe School’ Micro Site

CARMEL, Ind. —Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies has created a new safe school micro-site within its Web site to show support to schools during National Safe School Week, Oct. 17-23. The new site includes four sections: Safe School Activities, Safety and Security, Facts about School Safety, and Resources.

“We felt that it was very important to support this special week by creating a Web site full of helpful information and ideas concerning school safety for principals, security/safety directors and superintendents,” emphasizes Beverly Vigue, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies vice president, education markets. “Since there is so much information that is valuable beyond National School Safety Week, we plan to keep the site live until at least the end of this year.  In addition, we’ll be E-mailing educators, informing them of the site.”

The new “Safe School” site is quite comprehensive. For instance, the Safe School Activities section provides suggested activities for National Safe School Week broken down into pages specifically for students and staff, the community at large and another for emergency responder. Among the activities listed is how to start a safe home program, providing a safe place for children to go when endangered or needing assistance.

The Safety and Security section is divided into pages on risk mitigation, prospective seminars and security solutions. The Facts section lives up to its name by offering input such as how 1.3 million high school students are threatened or injured with weapons on school property at least once every year. Lastly, the Resources section provides over two dozen links to other sites as diverse as the federal grant program to D.A.R.E.
