As the attack was taking place, another quick thinking student pulled the fire alarm which resulted in the evacuation of the school. In an intruder situation, students in the district are instructed to run and get away as quickly as possible, thus the pulling of the fire alarm was in line with the school's philosophy for emergency situations. This policy is in stark contrast to what we do in Warwick in terms of our Lock Down drills.
Across the country districts disagree heavily on the best way to handle an intruder situation. Many districts use similar tactics to Warwick, while others teach students to attack the attacker, and still others suggest you simply run as quickly as possible away from the danger.
Is Warwick's Lock Down drill the best way to go? Thoughts?
