This is a must listen episode! This week's guest is David Riedman, researcher and creator of the K-12 School Shooting Database. We discuss the surprising realities around shootings and violence at schools that often go unreported in the media. How can emergency managers help schools be more proactive with safety planning and preparedness? David shares insights from the data and patterns seen in the 300+ school shootings in the database. We also talk about the role of gun detection technology like ZeroEyes, the company David now works for, that uses AI and cameras to immediately detect firearms and provide alerts. Tune in to learn more about current school safety issues beyond the mass shooting incidents covered in the news.
