National security shelters help protect schools and government officials from escalating gun violence … | Your money
FORT PIERCE, Florida, September 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – National security shelters, (NSS), an organization specializing in customizable safety shelters, actively helps protect schools and public servants from the growing trend of gun violence in the United States. In recent months, cases of gun violence targeting schools and government officials have increased. National Safety Shelters provides schools and public institutions with a cost-effective and secure solution to ensure the safety of students, school staff, government officials and staff members of government officials.
The January 6 riots in the U.S. capital underscored the growing threat of gun violence, as it was broadcast nationally for millions of Americans to see live. The riot was an outlier due to the wide media coverage, but it was not the only violence threatened against Congress.
Threats to Congress increased 107% in 2021 from 2020, according to Business Insider’s John Haltiwanger, and the number of threats is expected to increase as the year progresses. In 2020, the U.S. Secret Service reported they had around 8,000 cases of threats made against members of Congress, while the United States Capitol Police (USCP) say they had around 9,000 cases.
To address this issue, the USCP has expressed support for “increasing the threat assessment staff and restructuring the Department to establish an autonomous counter-surveillance entity – both of which require resources and authorization.” .
Yogananda Pittman, the acting head of the USCP, has officially called on the Defense Department to keep thousands of National Guard soldiers on Capitol Hill beyond their scheduled departure next week due to the increased threats against lawmakers.
Gun violence has long been a major problem for American schools. In September 2021, two Florida college students from Lee County were accused of planning a mass shooting at a Columbine-inspired school. The previous month, two high school students in South Florida were accused of making online threats to “terrorize” their high school, police said.
To protect lives in schools and public institutions across the country, National Safety Shelters provides cost-effective and safe solutions in the form of safe rooms, safety shelters and security lugs.
“Finding protective and cost-effective solutions that save lives can be a challenge for schools and public institutions. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of gun violence in the United States, this has become a top priority, ”said Dennis Corrado, president of National Safety Shelters.
“Our team at National Safety Shelters recognizes this challenge and we work every day to provide solutions that help school leaders and public servants achieve the safety they deserve at a cost that is manageable for their budget.”
Made from US military-grade ballistic steel, these security shelters protect against fire from commonly used firearms and semi-automatic weapons such as AK-47s and AR-15s. They also provide protection against explosions and shrapnel from improvised explosive devices (IEDs). They are the only security measure currently available that offers instant access to near absolute protection.
National Safety Shelters also offers small pods that can be placed in personal offices and homes to protect one to more people. Larger models can accommodate hundreds of occupants, as needed. Each pod can be custom configured to fit virtually any available space. In the case of the Capitol Building, the pods would only require a fraction of the $ 1.9 billion spending bill Congress is currently proposing for security upgrades.
