This blanket was inspired by tornados like Sandy Hook and is designed to save the lives of students.
Steve Walker said that tragedies like Sandy Hook and recent tornado outbreaks inspired this blanket.
It would “stop that blunt-force trauma,” like bullets or rubble.
The blanket has straps so it can be worn like a backpack. It’ll be made with lightweight padding used for ballistic armor.
The blankets are cheaper than tornado shelters, plus children wouldn’t need to leave the classroom in the event of an emergency.
The company is encouraging school administrators to make its protective blankets part of their protocols.
