Upon detection of an active shooter, either through manual operation or Shotfinder technology, the school is flooded with a safe and breathable smoke agent (CO2, or equivalent). Visibility in the hallways and spaces (possibly classrooms) is immediately reduced to a few feet/inches. Classroom lockdown procedures could be used in parallel, or a ‘panic button’ could optionally flood classrooms and alert the response team.... more »
Looks like DHS launched the new campus resilience program resource library recently here: https://www.dhs.gov/campus-resilience-program-resource-library I love it, thanks DHS! I'll post this link on my websites too. - A GREAT STEP FORWARD: To me, this puts the ball back in the corner of Schools/Campuses, we must now observe if schools will actually systematically comb through the above website, and collect the documents,... more »
A small group or school same education and experience program and more importantly. The experience.Cause everyone deserves a chance at like know matter what back ground you
Come from we all people and in America Dreams are possible
The shootings in our schools is intolerable and people are desperate for a real solution, understandably so. As a parent of six adult kids and the grand father of 18 grand kids and 11 great grand kids, I join with everyone else in desiring our kids to be safe and not worrying about going to school and whether or not that day they may be shot or killed; I can't imagine what that must be like for our kids; it has to stop.... more »
I don't know if this is where i put this or not but i got scammed from 2 men one saying that he works in the chemical lab with DOH and the other one saying he use to work with DOHS so can you tell me what my next step is? The attached image is a copy of one receipt saying he sent MG cause he had someone who could help me get my $ back that i was previously scammed out of.
I am not sure if this is an idea that has already been thought of but might I suggest that schools should have systems to lay down smoke or foam in an emergency. It is not a complete solution but may delay or disorientate the shooter for enough time for an armed response to arrive. If nothing else it would provide some comfort for the pupils. The school could also have for personal safety apparatus rather like fire... more »
The idea to help prevent school/teen suicide would be to promote such programs that would educate teens on the possibility of "what comes after?" Including assemblies where people who have experienced death and recovery after suicide. Hell seems to be the prevailing experience and a descriptive example coming from an actual survivor may be the key. Also... In regard to school shootings... Education would also be the tool.... more »
To ensure U.S global competitiveness and to ensure steady automatic job creation the Federal Government must start investing in building training and vocational centers nationwide. Those new schools will cover the existing major gap a well trained and skilled people who are the engine that propel the flow of production in this country. Germany is a very small country compared to the U.S but Germany's robust apprentice... more »
CLANDESTINE SENSORS at schools and other public entrances would be uniquely set up to SPECIFICALLY AND IMMEDIATELY TRACK ALL TYPES OF CONCEALED FIREARMS at all building entrances. Firearms carried by hired security would already be cleared. Federal laws will be enacted by Congress declaring that ALL REGISTERED (AND NON-REGISTERED) FIREARMS MUST BE RECALLED AND CHIPPED to be able to be tracked. All Americans would rally... more »
All schools should equip themselves with Bulletproof wall pannels that act as riot shields. These riot shields could save many lives by blocking line of sight and giving the students a chance to defend themselves from many potential acts of terror. If we cannot stop the shooters from entering the school and shooting then lets stop the bullets from reaching there intended targets These pannels could also decend from... more »
Under this Academic Engagement campaign subsection, I would like to propose the idea of creating preparedness learning modules for high school and college education, so that they may embrace preparedness as early as feasible. Consider the following example (teacher’s version) I previously prepared for one of my friends who is currently teaching. - ********************* TEACH YOUTH PREPAREDNESS THROUGH EXAMINING HISTORIC... more »
Said Teachers Unions should co fund ALL campus Security & Safety programs.
Use X% funds for school safety nationwide.
CUT down on DC expenses alone.
Tour Union Hqs in Wash DC & note the waste & glitter, etc.
Paid for by Dues. Your dues IF Union.
No excuse they have the Funds to support.
Blame Union bosses.
Teach staff to use guns, MACE, pepper spray, etc alone.
Arm the janitors, cooks etc.
