It is an unfortunate reality that we live in a world in which the unthinkable can happen in our schools and places of work. Although many don’t want to think about it, it’s essential now more than ever to become aware of our surroundings and have a disaster plan in place in case a dangerous intruder or active shooter infiltrates our schools.
That’s why Claria Clean is partnering with Command-Solutions and Matt Stark from The Stark Insurance Company to provide an active shooter training course at City Garden School on August 1. Approximately 40 teachers and staff members will be able to take advantage of this course, which will include a walk-through training and coaching session for each classroom in the facility.
The course will also cover an array of important topics including dangerous and/or violent intruders and active shooter situations in a school environment. The staff and teachers will learn how to recognize a possible threat and will learn the appropriate actions to take, which will ensure their safety and the safety of their students and colleagues.
We believe that all organizations, including schools, should be prepared to handle life-threatening situations. Our aim is that this course will help this school’s teachers and staff be better prepared should a dangerous intruder or an active shooter event occur. Doing so can help save lives and thwart the intruder’s motives more quickly.
