BGSU: Active-Shooter Response

As we toured various universities looking for the right fit for my oldest daughter, I was impressed by the security and safety plans that had been adopted.  This video from Bowling Green State University gives some good background on the ALICE program and on the university’s emergency response protocols.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Good start, but how wss the shooter allowed to just walk into the school, no locked door , no credentials need.

    Using a table for a barricade: I have mixed opinions on this. I can understand why the idea is promoted but this will further propagate aftermarket door barricades. This brings me to another thought, though. The clip didn’t show a faculty member with a key locking a classroom security lock or undogging an exit device. Where was the demonstration on using code-compliant hardware?

      Hi Eric –

      ALICE teaches barricading with furniture or other objects, so people are prepared to secure the door even when there isn’t a lock or when they don’t have the key needed to secure a classroom security lock.

    No classroom intruder function locks or similar on classroom doors?

      Hi Pete –

      On our college tours last summer, we saw a lot of classroom/lecture hall doors that we would not have been able to secure if there was an active shooter in the building. Some colleges are moving to office function locks, but I think the best solution for colleges – for several reason – would be electrified locks.

    Confusing message regarding barricading the door? In the video, it appeared there wasn’t any form of classroom security lock on the door. It may have been the only way to secure the room from the intruder.
