Being Prepared for Active Shooter Incidents by Learning from the Data

Does it seem as though the number of active shooter incidents is rising? Especially after the Sept. 23, 2014 UPS workplace shooting here in Birmingham, AL. The FBI just released A Study of Active Shooter Incidents in the United States Between 2000 and 2013. If you download the actual study, a snapshot begins on page 6. We found the data on page 14 interesting. The FBI blog, Stories, has a post on the study with a few graphics.

Free Summer Meals for Kids

Use Find Food from the National Hunger Clearinghouse to find free sites throughout the nation for summer meals.

If you live in Alabama, also check Summer Feeding Participants from the Child Nutrition Program within the Alabama Department of Education. Sites are still being added so check back often if you don’t find a site near you.

If you live in a different state, check your state’s Department of Education for additional information or sites.
