A+ Technology Adds Virtual Reality to School Safety Training Seminars

The integrator added the virtual reality component due to the growing number of active shooter incidents, aggression and bullying in school.

BAY SHORE, N.Y. —  A+ Technology & Security Solutions, a systems integrator specializing in the convergence of physical security, A/V, LED and IT infrastructure solutions, announces that the company has added a Threat Vulnerability & Risk Assessment (TVRA) and Comprehensive Safety Training Division incorporating virtual reality.

Seminars can be hosted either at A+ Technology’s headquarters or at individual school locations, and is intended to help schools be completely prepared to respond quickly to potential security threats and help limit their liability, according to the company.

The virtual reality training drills virtualize a school environment and provide an immersive training experience for faculty and students covering active shooter, crisis intervention, emergency response and more.

A+ Technology joined forces with long time security veteran Joseph Pangaro, a retired Police Lieutenant from Monmouth County, N.J. to deliver the Comprehensive Safety Training Program that provide schools with the real-life training necessary to mitigate the risk of an emergency situation.

“With the launch of our new virtual reality active shooter simulation for students and staff members, A+ Technology is helping schools become proactive in preparing for the worst-case scenarios,” says David Antar, president of A + Technology & Security Solutions. “Showing them how to respond and react in a live virtual environment is just as important as helping them learn how to prevent incidents by securing entrances, deploying panic buttons and implementing an integrated communication system with local police departments.”
