There were moments of panic after a fast-moving wildfire marched toward a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant near Boulder, Colorado. Worried kids and parents ran to the exit, but questioned if they should evacuate. They reached the restaurant door, but found themselves stuck inside. A wind gust of 110 miles per hour bore down on the door. Finally, the families were able to break free and run for their cars, as sirens wailed.
Students should develop a picture of what the airspace above them looks like. This will help them to understand how to contribute to pilot safety and to set for them, the most realistic and effective goals.

CRS REPORT Prepared for Members and Committees of Congress
This report provides an overview of grant programs at the U.S. Department of Education (ED), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that provide direct or indirect funding for school and campus safety and security initiatives. The report also provides an overview of programs and initiatives administered by these departments that support school safety and security efforts in other ways,such as through data collection and reporting and technical assistance.
In addition, the federal government operates initiatives that support the efforts of state and local governments to secure schools. For example, the Federal Commission on School Safety was formed in 2018 to make policy recommendations on a range of school safety and security issues. As another example, the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council provides advice and recommendations to the DHS Secretary and departmental senior leadership on matters related to homeland security and the academic community.
