Staying Safe

With all of the active shooter news around the country the past few months, we wanted to share some resources you may find helpful.  First, we have a link to a short video produced by the Texas State Office of Risk Management on Active Shooter Emergency Preparedness.  There is a great deal of good information in the video, however please be aware that it may be disturbing to some viewers.
