THIS SCHOOLTEACHER’S ACTIVE SHOOTER BACKPACK IS GOING VIRAL

Kelsey Vidal is a first grade teacher with all the things you might expect in her classroom: cubbies full of art supplies, posters along the wall, bright colors, and, perhaps the most necessary, an active shooter preparedness backpack. There have been 27 school shootings this year, and the recent tragedy at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas inspired Vidal to share how she readies her classroom for any and all threats. In a viral video, the 29-year-old shows two backpacks. The first of which, she says, “was given to us by the school. This is what we use for fire drills when we practice evacuating the school for whatever kind of emergency [preparedness] they think that we need.”

… She then shows her active shooter backpack. With the help of her mother, brother, and father, Vidal collected supplies they felt were necessary in a dangerous situation, including tourniquets to stop major bleeding, pressure bandages, scissors to cut through jeans or shirts if need be, bulletproof plates and vests, and more medical supplies
