Look at the security fences, lighting, emergency equipment and safety staff. Make sure that everything is its place and in a good working condition.
Form a team that will always respond to any security threats. Each team member should know their roles when disaster strikes for school safety.
An Elaborate Communication System
Set up a system that can be used at the critical moment. Two-way radios may be ideal where phone network may fail. That way, school safety is ensured.
