Middle Georgia Schools Examine Security

Following bomb threats in Peach County, shootings in Minnesota, schools reexamine security

GEMA officials said if school systems rehearsed their school safety plans regularly with staff and even students, it could help them identify potential problems, like intercom systems that may not work in some areas of the schools, or training substitutes and new teachers in the plans and allowing public safety officials to visit schools and learn the school layouts.

"Some schools put their safety plans on a shelf somewhere and some can't find it," Golden said. "It's a life-saving device and needs to be treated as such."
