Strengthening Windows to Prevent Active Assailant Attacks

Unreinforced windows are one of the most vulnerable parts of a campus or building, especially when active assailants strike. That’s why it’s critical for schools, universities, hospitals and other facilities to harden their glass openings with security laminate film.

Doing so not only mitigates the active shooter risk, it can also protect building occupants from flying debris during high-wind events, as well as help conserve energy by keeping buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

But once your windows have been adequately protected, students, faculty, staff and administrators need to be trained on how to appropriately respond to all types of emergencies.

So, how can a campus combine its target-hardening efforts with its safety and security training? One company that is helping campuses with both is Clear Armor.

Clear Armor enhances the well-being of campus communities by hardening their buildings’ two weakest points: their glass and their people.

In my interview with Clear Armor CEO Dave Trudeau, he tells us about how his company installs security laminate film to protect windows, as well as offers training on critical topics like Stop-the-Bleed, situational awareness, self-protection, resilience and more.

Clear Armor is also sponsoring the 2021 Campus Safety Conference, so if you are attending, be sure to drop by their booth.
