Deborah Tuff, 41 Action News Reporter, visited Blue Ridge Christian School in Raytown, Mo. during a recent training session for teachers and staff. On October 16, SafeDefend™ and local law enforcement teamed up show how to use the personnel protection system.
SafeDefend™ gave the school 25 personnel protection systems and helped instruct teachers on how to use the items inside. The protection systems are housed inside a small locker and open quickly with the swipe of a thumb. SafeDefend™ founder Jeff Green said, “If something happens in your classroom, you may not have time to access things, so the best thing you can do is activate the system.”
Tuff asked Blue Ridge Christian School Headmaster Kathy Reynolds what she thought about the system. Reynolds said, “It is a perfect situation for a teacher who is not very violent to at least have a tool.”
In addition to giving Blue Ridge Christian School personnel protection systems, SafeDefend™ is helping the school to raise money to cover the cost for more systems and scholarships for students. The campaign aims to raise $100,000 with $25,000 going toward personnel protection systems and $75,000 going toward scholarships. Money raised over the goal will continue to go to scholarships.
