Facilities Vulnerability Assessments

PBK-REDi will engage its multi-faceted team of safety/security, architectural/design, and education specialists to prepare a comprehensive Rapid Scan Vulnerability Assessment (RSVA) report. This report will be custom-developed through inspections at each site to document and inventory conditions and opportunities for improvements. Specifically, the RSVA will:
a. Determine facility weaknesses related to:
i. threats from hostile outsiders,
ii. life safety issues of ingress/egress,
iii. lockdown/shelter-in-place conditions, and
iv. evacuation readiness.
b. Recommend mitigation strategies using structural, technological, and equipment enhancements.
