How to Secure a School Building Against a Potential Threat

Securing a school building against a potential threat requires a comprehensive approach that includes both physical security measures and emergency planning. Schools should adapt their safety protocol to include the following:

  • Physical security measures. This can include installing security cameras, access control systems, and panic buttons. It is also important to ensure that all doors and windows are shatter resistant, secure, and that any potential entry points are identified and addressed.  
  • Develop an emergency response plan. Emergency planning is also critical in securing a school building against a potential threat. This includes having a plan that outlines procedures for responding to a potential threat, such as an active shooter.
  • Get involved. It is important to involve everyone that could be present during a dangerous event, including teachers, staff, and students. Review this information periodically so everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergency.
