Shootings resulting in multiple student being injured sent schools into lockdown throughout an Ohio town. This reminds us once again of the need to have lockdown and evacuation kits in every classroom in America.
Each classroom needs to have emergency supplies in case of the need to lockdown or to evacuate in an emergency or disaster. Our experience is that all schools have plans for emergencies, but many do not have the supplies necessary to support their plans. It is critical to have emergency supplies in each classroom as well as other supplies stored elsewhere for the whole school.
In addition to lockdown kits for each classroom, we also recommend having adequate trauma first aid supplies on hand in case medical aid from the outside is delayed.
