NJ Schools May Install Panic Buttons
A proposed New Jersey bill would mandate panic buttons and red emergency lights in schools.
Dubbed “Alyssa’s Law,” the legislation would require all schools to have a dedicated panic button for use during school shootings and other dire emergencies, the New York Post said.
The device would not be audible at the school but would immediately alert authorities.
In addition, a red emergency placed in a visible spot on the school’s exterior would activate in times of crisis.
For buildings removed from roadways, the light would be positioned on a nearby street.
