Honeywell Seminars to Help Midwest Schools Prepare for Security Threats

The free educational series is intended to help participants learn how to prepare for and react to security concerns.

MELVILLE, N.Y. – In conjunction with local security integrators, Honeywell will continue in 2015 with a series of free seminars the Midwest that are aimed to educate school officials on how to identify, prevent, and react to real-life security threats in schools.

Attendees are taught how to employ an integrated access control, intrusion and video surveillance security platform to effectively prepare for and respond to emergency incidents. The six-hour session, geared toward school superintendents, administrators and facility managers, features a hands-on demonstration of integrated security solutions from Honeywell. The sessions also include information especially relevant for school security, presented by a local security integrator as well as members of local law enforcement.

Additionally, each session includes a demonstration from Dave Trudeau, president of Clear Armor, who shows the importance of glass laminate and how it can be implemented to effectively protect life, health and property from criminal or natural threats.

“The headlines lately are filled with stories about horrific incidents at schools. These sessions give us an opportunity to engage in meaningful dialog with school officials at the grassroots level and illustrate solutions that meet the unique needs of the education sector,” says Bruce Montgomery, business development manager for Honeywell and a former law enforcement professional. “Everyone who attends has been really impressed how flexible and scalable it is, and how easy it is to implement.”

In addition to learning about the latest security solutions, school officials are also able to meet with and share ideas with their peers. Participants receive a certificate for a free system analysis by a certified security integrator and recommendations for improving their security operational plan.

Earlier this fall, the first seminars were launched across the Midwest, touching major cities in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Texas, Wisconsin and Oklahoma. Additional meetings are being planned in 2015 for schools in Kansas City, Mo.; Lincoln, Neb.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Louisville, Kent.
