Sandy Hook. Columbine. Virginia Tech. Stoneman Douglas High School.
These names are seared into our subconsciousness. They were supposed to be places of learning, friendship, and fun, not settings for darkness and death. But, tragically, such incidents have become all too common. Hardly a week goes by when the news doesn’t carry a report of violence that violates the safety of a school or workplace or house of worship.
It may seem like it at times, but the situation is not hopeless. There are options to protect our youngest and most vulnerable citizens. Our slogan of “Doing Nothing Is Not An Option” speaks volumes because if you are prepared for a confrontation, you can act to protect yourself and others.
Protocol Training In Schools
School protocol is a major step towards safety. Security consultants can help you create the right protocol training for your schools needs. Realistic drills teach students and staff how to react in the event of a school shooting. They build confidence while also helping manage and reduce anxiety.
It’s too late when an event is happening to wonder what to do. Training delivers a margin of safety that can make the difference between safety and tragedy.
Information is one of the keys to safety, and that is the mindset behind our active shooter app Alert-Com at Alert Protection Services. A product like this is the perfect complement to your facility protocol. It provides immediate threat information to individuals across the campus and first responders, allowing them to react accordingly.
Real Time Notifications
Alert-Com is an easy to use, fully customizable app with real time emergency notifications. This system allows you to quickly and accurately communicate with an entire staff system in the event of an emergency situation.
A client recently said, “As Director of security and safety which has 270 full-time employees with a complicated and secured complex, the texting capability alone to either warn people of danger or to tell them that it’s all clear has value that can exceed any other tool we currently have.”
