Deep Run Elementary has added many new safety features during the renovation. So, that means there is also going to be some new safety rules. In this article, we are going to talk about defibrillators and how they save lives, and how to stay safe in tornadoes.
The school’s renovation has added cool new features to Deep Run Elementary to make it even safer. Another term for defibrillator is AED. An AED is something that has two pads that people put on another person’s heart if they are having a heart problem. The two pads have an electric current. That current touches the person’s heart and gives them a sudden shock and gives them their life back. These are commonly found at hospitals. There is a defibrillator and they are usually charged giving them power to work. Deep Run’s defibrillator can be found near the SST office. Defibrillators can save lives.
Another topic having to do with safety is a tornado. Tornado's are more likely not to hit Maryland but we need to be prepared anyway. For tornados we must duck and cover. We also call the county on an emergency radio to notify the officials.
In our school we have a cool security system that has forty eight cameras. They are pretty much everywhere and you don’t even notice them most of the time. As you probably have seen, Mrs. McCarthy and Mrs. Snavely have video screens that show everything in the school. Even thought you may think it’s creepy, the cameras are helping keep our school safe!
