New Safety Device to be Installed in Schools for Active Shooter Situations
Schools in Bullhead City, Mohave Valley, Topock, Laughlin and around the Tri-State are going to be having additional measures in place that will help protect them in the event of an active shooter incident. $20,000 has been donated by the BHHS Legacy Foundation in order to help provide something called The Sleeve. The Sleeve is a metal device that will be fitted onto 400 classroom doors in case a door needs to be locked quickly. The Sleeve, which was invented by a teacher, slides over the door’s closer arm, making it virtually impossible to penetrate the door, making the active shooter move on instead of trying to force the door open. The Sleeve, which can withstand 550-foot pounds of pressure from the outside of the door, may save the lives of up to 4,200 students in the Tri-State. The Colorado River Women’s Council has also raised another $5,600 toward The Sleeve. Their POKE program previously donated money to help equip schools with emergency supplies and two-way radios that link to police dispatchers.
