Re: “Fire code change approved over fire marshal's objections; will help sale of device with political investors

We are all rightfully concerned with the safety and security of our children and educators. These devices, while well intended, pose more problems than they solve. Let's take fires. It was pointed out in the article that there reason we have had no deaths from fires in schools in recent years (although there are in excess of 5000 per year)is because of the life safety codes we have in place. We should be concerned about the risk these devices pose due to the fact that they give anyone in the building the opportunity to lock any door at any time. Student on student and student on teacher violence statistics would indicate that there is a much larger chance of a student grabbing another student or teacher, dragging them into a room and carrying out their violent mission uninterrupted. What about the ability of anyone in the building being able to barricade themselves in a room with or with hostages? The fact is that there are no documented cases of an active shooter breaching a locked door. There are many code compliant products available to address the issue of being able to lock down a door quickly in an active shooter situation. Let's focus on those.
