Enhanced Lockdown We use a lockdown when there is an unsafe person or situation in our building. A lockdown uses your common sense. In these situations there is not one single set of steps that we should follow. Instead, with the help of your teacher, we will make decisions and work together. Some decisions are: Communication Barricade Evacuate Counter / Distract
Communication Share and gather information by any way possible If you see something, say something Listen for information over the loud speaker and from your teacher If you contact the main office or emergency responders (fire and police) be sure to tell them who you are, where you are and what is going on
Barricade If we are in a Lockdown: Report to the nearest classroom with a teacher Lock the door Turn lights off Pull down shades Listen to your teacher Help Barricade Doors Use desks, bookshelves, chairs, etc Tie doors shut with belts or other objects found in room
Examples of Barricades
Evacuate Leave the building when safe Exit safely and quickly from the building to a safe spot Examples of safe spots are: Fire Headquarters, Town Hall, Lyons Ambulance, Danvers Square, ect
Counter / Distract This is an OPTION depending on the situation presented. How to respond if the aggressor does get into your safe area and there are no safe ways to evacuate Throw items at the aggressor Make noise Evacuate the room or area if possible
DHS Safety All of Danvers’ schools are safe schools but we always have to be ready for an emergency. There are many adults who are here to keep you safe and help you during an emergency. Always if you see or hear something unsafe say something to an adult.
