A Glastonbury-based manufacturer has made “a case” that its product can help school safety.
HABCO Industries is marketing what it calls a “Traumaid School Survival And Rescue Kit” to school districts around the country.
The kit, which is housed in a Pelican briefcase and comes with a price tag of up to $1500, can be customized to what a school wants to help prevent another Newtown.
Optional items include a deployable ladder, a heavy-duty door stop, a tactical smoke grenade, and even an 800,000 volt stun gun.
“Some schools don’t have multiple stories, so they don’t need a ladder, some school systems are uncomfortable having a stun gun or having pepper spray in their kit, they don’t need to put it in, at the end of the day we’re trying to provide a kit that will buy time,” Brian Montanari, HABCO CEO, said.
