It’s a topic that’s made news headlines and is on the minds of many: how to keep schools safe and secure in the face of mass shootings in the United States. As school administrators and community officials work to protect schools from acts of targeted violence, the School Safety and Security Update fact sheet helps answer frequently asked questions and provides guidance on safe door locking. The fact sheet explains NFPAs current provisions and how they can be safely applied. On the more general topic of safety in public venues, the Safety in Places of Public Assembly tip sheet offers guidance for staying safe in the face of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or some other type of disaster or crisis. The tips sheet offers advice before entering a building, when you enter, and what to do during an emergency.
