They are kits no one hopes to use, but ones a local school district said could save a life in the event of the unimaginable.

To prepare for an active shooter, the Clio School District is arming its classrooms with supplies.

Heidi Hummel and her classmates are gearing up for their senior year at Clio High School.

In this day and age, in light of all the school shootings, back-to-school prep has taken a more somber tone. This year at Clio, every classroom will have what’s called a “safety bucket.”

“We are unloading them and using them in the event of a lockdown situation. We’re also going to use them as food and supplies if we were ever locked down for a long time,” Hummel said.

The buckets will go into every classroom in the district.

Assistant Principal Kevin Ayre said the school needs the public’s help to fill the buckets with potentially life-saving supplies

A bucket wouldn't do much good unless it scared the crap out of someone and they needed to go really bad. I find it amazing the blame is always passed onto someone or some organization when the problems were created by liberal ignorance, don't charge any students no matter what kind of crimes they might commit because it will make the school district look bad. Yeah sure would wouldn't it, I don't think the truth is in the vocabulary of most of these people, but thankfully more and more people are finally getting a grip on what ignorance really looks like.

They need to fill the buckets with glocks.

Well, having access to emergency supplies like food, water, basic medical supplies, etc., for an emergency situation isn't a bad thing.
If a student is shot, having access to the supplies to temporarily bind the wound and stop or slow the bleeding until paramedics arrive could save his or her life.
Though, I do agree with Angry Old White Man that the best way to prevent future mass shootings is to stop being so apathetic, stop looking the other way and ignoring basic legal/ safety protocol if they discover someone who is disturbed and potentially dangerous.

The best way to deal with an active shooter is to get the kids out of the building as quickly as possible, if the shooter is in the building. This is beyond having an armed teacher or security guard, it's just the most sensible way to do it-break windows, get the kids out and have them run to safety.
