Blue Ridge Christian School will be having its training kickoff on Oct. 16, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. SafeDefend’s lead trainer, a local law enforcement officer, will be at the school to train teachers and staff how to use the contents of SafeDefend’s Personnel Protection System, including pepper spray, batons and more.
In addition, SafeDefend launched a campaign for the school to raise $100,000 for the protection system and scholarships for students. SafeDefend will be covering the costs for the system until the school can raise the money.
Blue Ridge leadership aims to have a Personnel Protection system in every classroom in order to maintain a high level of security and emergency preparedness. It’s goal is to raise $25,000 for installing SafeDefend throughout the entire school and covering monitoring costs for five years and an additional $75,000 for scholarships, for a goal of $100,000 total. All funds raised over the cost of the SafeDefend System will go toward Blue Ridge Christian School scholarships.
