Talk with your family. If you have school-age children in your life, talk with their schools, ask about their planning and response. Ask children what lock-down measures and drills mean in their school and how they work. Discuss what you would do if you and your family were ever involved in an active shooter incident. Proper preparation makes you and your family safer.
