Active Shooter Incidents

The tragedy in Parkland, FL has schools asking what can be done to help minimize these events in the future. When it comes to protecting our children, we must err on the side of caution and care.  A regular security assessment helps to ensure that school campuses will be as safe and secure as we can make them.  It is always preferable to spot potential problems an fix them before they result in damage or injury to people or property.
