SECURITY & PLANNING

In a world where active shooters have become a frequent incident, security measures and planning are necessary for any structure. Organizations and companies should have a complete understanding of their evacuation and lockdown procedures—with the overall goal to prevent loss of life. When utilizing these maps, you have to ask yourself:

  1. If emergency personnel needed to address an active shooter or other security threat, would they have updated facility maps at their disposal?
  2. If a teacher needed to lock down their classroom, would they have an illustrative tool that reminds them how to process to follow?
  3. Does your business/organization have up-to-date floor plans that allow you to create safe training tools for any situation?
