On Monday, October 31st, the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs had the pleasure of hearing Paul Hildreth speak about his role as Director of Safety and Security in Fulton County Schools.
Hildreth started his presentation by asking a question, "If you had to fight for your life tomorrow....how hard would you train today?" This questions frames the mindset that Hildreth and his team wake up with every day to continue to keep Fulton County schools safe and secure
Hildreth reviewed a few of the many tools his team uses to keep campuses safe:
Hildreth closed by explaining how they are always learning from current events and refining their security plans to combat the ever changing threats that put the safety and security of Fulton County Schools at risk.
Thank you for the informative presentation and for all you do for the Students, Faculty, and Staff of Fulton County School Paul!
