DoorJammer Lockdown - the portable security device for your school campus
Once upon a time we would have looked upon this statement with confusion, why in the world would a school, a place of learning and wonder need to utilize personal protection devices in classrooms? In today’s world however student and teacher safety on our school campus is unfortunately a very real concern.
Active shooter and other dangerous intruder situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.
Schools have a legal requirement to consider and prepare for a serious incident occurring. Preparing for an eventuality of this type can only help in ensuring both staff and children know what to do if the worst should happen.
Standard Response Protocol
This is a nationally recognized protocol for incident response in schools and public buildings. A critical part of a safe school is uniform classroom response to any incident.
The Standard Response Protocol follows a simple but specific vocabulary that allows students and staff to act quickly in the event of a situation...
This is a precaution used to isolate students and staff inside the school from potential dangers outside the school such as criminal activity in the community. Campus staff will bring all children inside, secure the exterior doors, and monitor the situation, preventing unauthorized visitors into the school.
This is a procedure used when there is a threat to the school. Lockdown minimizes access to the school and secures staff and students in rooms. DoorJammer Lockdown is ideal for this situation as it can prevent unwanted entry to any room you are in and fast - any nearby room can become a safe space. Its patented steel design allows use on almost any inward swinging door, even without a lock or handle. The device installs quickly and simply with the turn of a hand screw, both adults and children can easily install DoorJammer Lockdown to create a barricade.
As part of this procedure, everyone must remain in the room until the situation has been declared safe by an authorized person such as a Police Officer. When the ‘all clear’ has been given and it is safe to do so, simply just pull the handle upward and DoorJammer Lockdown will quickly lift away.
This is a precaution aimed to keep students and staff safe while remaining indoors. Situations that may require the campus to shelter in place include natural disasters, severe weather, accidental or intentional release of chemical, biological or radiological material, or an emergency safety situation in the community. Depending on the circumstances, persons with proper identification may be allowed to enter and exit the building. Students may be kept beyond normal school hours, with or without air conditioning. Food and drinks will be made available if students are kept over an extended time.
Evacuate is called when there is a need to move students from one location to another. A typical example of the need to evacuate is in the event of a fire.
