Sycamore And Several Other Illinois Schools Install Special Emergency Boxes
Several Illinois schools, including those in Sycamore, have installed special emergency boxes to keep kids safe in case of a shooting.
It's unfortunate that our children live in a day and age that they must deal with or live with a fear of school shootings.
However, the state of Illinois is doing something about that to protect our kids in case that happens.
They're special boxes that look much like a fire alarm that have a handle that you would pull down in the case of a school shooting. They're "designed to quickly notify police of an active shooter situation at a church or school."
Here's a look at how they work.
So far over 150 schools have installed this alert system. I hope the trend continues and it's made available for every school in the U.S.
