There are many reasons why a classroom is locked down. From natural disasters to police incidents, there's no way to foresee what might happen to the school or areas near the school. While we all wish that nothing bad happens to our children, there's always a justifiable reason to stay prepared for the unexpected situations: We care about the children.
The Guardian Deluxe Classroom Lockdown Kit is designed to allow a class of 30 people to get through an emergency lockdown situation for an extended period of time. This kit provides the assurance that essential tools and food are provided to the children while help is on the way.
There are two types of lockdowns: Soft lockdown and hard lockdown. A soft lockdown allows the teacher to continue teaching the class but the door is locked. A hard lockdown requires all window blinds to be lowered, the lights turned off, the doors locked, and no noises are to be made.
Classroom lockdown is an important procedure to ensure the safety of students, especially after several police incidents that had occurred over the years that were in or near school grounds. During the lockdown, unless correct All-Clear code has been announced through the PA system, no classroom doors can be opened unless by trusted authorities.
This is why in the event that students and teachers have to stay inside a locked classroom for over several hours, having a survival kit can be helpful to everyone.
