Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, Carmel, Ind., this week announced that it created a new “Safe School” micro-site within its Web site to show support to schools during National Safe School Week, October 17-23.
The new site includes four sections:
  • safe school activities,
  • safety and security,
  • facts about school safety, and
  • resources.
“We felt that it was very important to support this special week by creating a Web site full of helpful information and ideas concerning school safety for principals, security/safety directors and superintendents,” said Beverly Vigue, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies vice president, education markets. “Since there is so much information that is valuable beyond National School Safety Week, we plan to keep the site live until at least the end of this year.”
The new “Safe School” site is quite comprehensive, according to IR. For instance, the Safe School Activities section provides suggested activities for National Safe School Week broken down into pages specifically for students and staff, the community at large and another for emergency responders. The Safety and Security section is divided into pages on risk mitigation, prospective seminars and security solutions.
