In the next episode of Paul Timm’s podcast – The Changing Face of School Security, he talks with ME! – Lori Greene, Manager – Codes & Resources at Allegion.

S1 Ep. 13 Fires, Egress, and Accessibility Codes: Debunking Myths and Embracing Change

When it comes to school security, certain codes and standards are put in place and regularly updated to keep people safe. And when these codes change, it’s important that schools stay current with safety protocols and regulations, including the types of hardware they incorporate into their school’s infrastructure.

Some hardware, like barricade devices, can be more harmful than helpful to a school’s security and accessibility in emergencies like active shooter events, fires and more.

Lori Greene (DAHC/CDC, CCPR, FDAI) joined Paul Timm in this episode of The Changing Face of School Security to discuss:

  • The importance of education on changing codes and standards surrounding fires, egress and accessibility in schools
  • Busting myths around school shootings, barricade devices and fires
  • Accessibility standards, glazing, and the future of school security
