Securing door during active shooter

Is there any section in the codes that would allow the temporary securing of doors in a means of egress to protect patients, visitors and staff in a healthcare occupancy from an active threat?  And If not how could this be moved through on a fast track in response to active shooter preparedness?  I hear rumors that this is being considered in educational occupancies.  These vulnerable populations do not have the ability to run, hide or fight! in most cases so a temporary means to protect them is necessary even if it means securing a door in a corridor.
