SECURE vs Lockdown
SECURE VS. LOCKDOWN
Staff are trained to lock classroom doors, shut off the lights, close the blinds, and to continually assess the situation. Schools have a button that activates an automatic PA announcement of the Emergency Lockdown message and releasing, closing and locking all controlled doors and restricting access to only specific individuals, notifying the alarm monitoring company and key personnel. Staff and students transition to run, hide, or fight based upon the situation presented.
