Campus Safety’s latest survey finds that K-12 schools are way ahead of institutions of higher education in conducting security site assessments and maintaining door locks.
Evaluating potential misuse of life safety systems and using existing infrastructure and technology are a few ways having a thorough system of response helps mitigate critical threats.
Here are some of the leading classroom door locking practices schools can adopt to effectively mitigate an active shooter attack.
Police confirmed the teacher propped open the door with a rock but closed it before the gunman entered, contradicting an original statement.
Safety and security are a priority for schools and legislators, but life safety shortcuts, such as door barricade devices, may lead to even more tragedy.
Most door barricade devices don’t comply with ADA and NFPA codes. They also pose other major risks.
Identify your risks at the start of your mass notification project, but also during the project and for as long as the MNS system is in use.
The NFPA Ecosystem Assessment Tool gives communities the opportunity to revisit safety practices before weaknesses in the system lead to tragedies.
Be sure your mass notification systems are code- and standard-compliant so they will meet the challenges your campus could face.
Schools are trying to accommodate hybrid classrooms by installing residential systems that meet immediate classroom needs but do not meet mass notification and life safety requirements.
In this webinar, attendees will learn the observable behaviors people exhibit as they head down a path of violence so we can help prevent the preventable.
This discussion will help participants analyze, understand, and assess their own program effectiveness.
