Risk Mitigation for School Campuses and Government Facilities Using Ballistic Safe Places

Wednesday, May 22nd

Complementing perimeter security measures by adding back-end safe places to mitigate or eliminate casualties from active assailants and bomb threats is urgent. Experience has demonstrated that when an active assailant breaches a facility’s perimeter and gains access to its interior, occupants become helpless victims if they have inadequate safety options. Especially given today’s dramatically increased threats to government officials, including members of Congress, federal judges and other state and local government officials, new approaches to mitigation should be considered. This session explores how ballistic safe places, such as individual safe pods/booths, mini saferooms or larger safety shelters can offer an effective safety net.
