Educational facilities have been identified as the second-largest location of active shooter events. Over two thirds of these incidents take place in school grades K through 12. There are many challenges facing our schools today including limited resources, increased rate of violence, and increased access to weapons. The impact of an incident at a school affects the entire community; students, parents, teachers, staff members, government officials and emergency responders. For this reason, communities must be well-prepared to mitigate casualties by quickly and effectively notifying authorities and coworkers of a potentially disastrous situation.
