This is a story about new safety measures that are being put into place at the Purdue campus following the wave of panic that swept across the campus in January when student Cody Cousins murdered classmate Andrew Boldt.
According to the story, by the time classes began in August, Purdue safety administrators had acted on many of the recommendations outlined in an April 28 report submitted by an ad hoc panel of faculty and staff which reviewed the university’s emergency response systems.
The biggest change was a “system that sends one warning message simultaneously through text, Twitter, Facebook, pop-ups on 3,000 classroom and lab desktop computers, the Boiler TV network in residence halls, the campus safety web page and emergency beacons installed in 27 large classrooms.”
In test done before school started the system works surprisingly well according to one official. The notifications give people a chance to think how they would react in different situations.
We have always recommended that women especially on a college campus carry a self-defense product such as a keychain pepper spray. One way you can protect yourself anywhere is with this Streetwise Keychain Pepper Spray that is rated at 87% stronger than competing brands and contains a UV marking dye. It is one of the few pepper sprays that can actually be sprayed from inside its case which makes access faster and easier. The safety lock presents accidental discharge.
