School Security

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 »

CREATE A NEW PS-PREP TYPE PROGRAM FOR SCHOOLS

IDEA: Given the current threat environment, perhaps DHS/USSS should create a new “PS-Prep” type program for Schools, to enhance their safety practices.
-
RECALL: In the past Congress through the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), has directed the creation of the “PS-Prep” program which enables business safety practices to be enhanced.

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 »

School Safety

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 »

School suicide and shootings

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 »

Ensuring the safety of our youth from shooters in schools and other public places

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 »

School shooting safety

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 »

IS PREPAREDNESS IGNORANCE BLISS OR BLUNDER

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.

Said Teachers Unions should co fund ALL campus Security & Safety programs.

Use X% funds for school safety nationwide.

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.

Post signs.

Screen professors for teaching pro terrorisim topics

Screen professors teaching Pro Islam, Antifa etc materials to students & are Anti Trump.

They alone can educate students to Block the Wall, why not Vet the professors teaching.

Why should they make outrageous claims, & topics & NOT be held to account.

ALL colleges & universities, some more than others.

Name colleges & college board staff too.

Place on Watch List.

Law class in Highschool

Teach from the police handbook the law. Also teach how to interact with the police. This will inform the population of how to behave in society in a legal manner. It will also keep the police and the population safer and increasingly cooperative. This could save many lives , unnecessary tickets and fines and create a more safe environment. This would also be very helpful for many minority communities.

New School Lockdown Procedure Idea

What I think that can be done to protect the lives of students and teachers from an active shooter is a new way to stop a door. The doors today are strong but can probably be opened by using a shotgun on the handle or maybe even with a lockpick. The idea that I have is to have a wall that goes parallel to the door that has an amount of space in between that a desk can fit perfectly. There is almost no way that the door... more »
