School Safety Assessment



NewDawn Security has first hand experience working in school districts and we understand how important it is for our students to experience a safe campus environment to ensure the educational process is not disrupted.

Having a School Safety Assessment performed is vital to this process and NewDawn Security can show you how important a safety plan is in preventing a crisis that can effect the lives of it’s students and the school’s long term relationship with the community.

There are many aspects to School Safety that go beyond the focus of a school security assessment which is more focused on external threats from rogue individuals intending to do harm to students and faculty out of revenge or becasue of mental illness.

School Safety assessments are more about the physical attributes of the building , campus and the procedures in place for emergency situations. Below are some of the areas to be addressed in a School Safety Assessment.

• Clear and precise emergency evacuation routes are posted at critical locations.

• Fire extinguisher locations are clearly marked and regularly inspected and the School staff is trained on the use of fire extinguishers .

• Hallways are free of travel impediments.

• Staff members, volunteer personnel, or a security camera should be monitoring the main
entrance lobby.

• Proper lighting in Hallways, Classroom, Bathrooms and main lobby.

• Emergency lighting is in working condition and emergency Exit signs are properly lighted, clearly visible.

• Ensuring there is a central alarm system and making sure it tested on a regular basis.

• Each school has a procedure for securing students during an intruder alert so that students on the playground or athletic fields,locker rooms, gymnasium or the cafeteria can be made aware of the situation and follow the proper procedures.

The above mentioned areas of school safety represent just a few of the polices, procedures and physical infrastructure that must be examined to ensure that your school district is at the highest level of readiness and alert for student safety.
