Mass shooting events occur daily, and school shooting events occur almost every week, according to statistics maintained by the Gun Violence Archive and Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund. And this recent CNN article outlining the 30 Deadliest Mass Shootings in the U.S. shows that mass shooting events can and do happen anywhere. Public places like churches, schools, offices, restaurants, military locations, gas stations, shopping malls, hospitals, movie theaters and even homes all have been affected.
Frontline ballistic protection buys precious time to protect occupants and save lives. Because 60% of mass shootings end before police arrive, help may not come fast enough to save you or your loved ones. Versatile ballistic protection products harden critical areas and offer an additional layer of security for schools, shopping centers and office buildings. While many of these facilities have implemented EAPs, most are built with little or no ballistic protections in place to safeguard occupants in the event of an active shooter situation.
Current response protocols heighten the need for ballistic protection, because they often suggest a “shelter in place” policy for those caught in an active shooter situation. Without proper ballistic protections, businesses and institutions face a greater risk of casualties, particularly when assault weapons are used.
Ballistic solutions from SPS help to close that gap, providing an additional layer of protection and giving occupants more opportunities to retreat.
Nearly 80% of mass shootings involve a handgun based on easy access and concealment.
Wood, drywall and furniture are no match for rifles and shotguns. Where will you hide? Armor up for safety.
Assault rifles can inflict maximum casualties and are too much for light-weight ballistic items like ceramics or others to handle. We offer NIJ level IV technology to protect against this threat.
