As 20th anniversary of the Columbine mass shooting looms, now more than ever, organizations, municipalities, and schools need to have their electronic life-safety and security systems in place and their emergency preparedness/response protocols practiced and ready to deploy.

Recent reports of a teen infatuated with the Columbine massacre who traveled from her home in Miami to Denver and bought a shotgun have Colorado schools on high-alert.

Of course, the first hope of every life-safety and security professional is that their systems are never needed. We here at Norris design, engineer and integrate the best, most cutting edge systems hoping our customers never find out what a good job we did. We’re honored and privileged to help our customers keep their people safe.

The impending anniversary of Columbine, coming on April 20th, 2019, reminds us that terrible tragedies can strike anytime and anywhere. Subsequent mass shootings in the interim served as additional reminders.
One of Norris’ specialties is helping administrators at schools keep all our children safe from unknown dangers.

Please call Norris today, or drop us a line and speak to one of our friendly and knowledgeable life-safety and security experts. We’d be happy to answer questions and help you keep your customers, visitors, students, faculty and staff safer.
