Time is an Unforgiven Enemy
BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: Imagine if within 90 seconds all students, teachers and staff become safe from bullets during a school active shooter event? Ballistic protection is both possible and available. During the development of an Active Shooter Response Plan for either schools or businesses, the first assumption is the time frame that one can expect for law enforcement and other first response team to arrival on scene and about how fast can these responders start to address the situation. Normally one should plan for a range of response times which, of course, is directly dependent on the current situation.
