Frank Storch’s Safety Guide Offers Clear Way to a More Secure School

Frank Storch, author of “Keep Your School Safe” explains what motivated him to write such a guide.

“I have thought about making this guide for many years,” he said. “But because of the Newtown tragedy, I felt that it was imperative — now more than ever — for schools to take a much-needed closer look at their safety and security measures to keep our children from any potential harm.”

The Newton tragedy which Frank Storch is referring to is of course the events of December 14, 2012, when a gunman forced his way into a Connecticut elementary school and kindergarten and murdered 20 children and six adults.

Ever since that morning officials who are responsible for the daily care of children have been asking the question, “How can we prevent that from happening to us?” Frank Storch’s guide is a concise, easy to understand pamphlet offering clear steps to making schools and other institutions safe and secure so such a tragedy can be prevented in the future.

“It’s a good, comprehensive document,” said Paul Goldenberg, national director of SCN (Secure Community Network) about “Keep Your School Safe.” “Though there’s no one-size-fits-all [security guide], this community created this document for their situation.”

Frank Storch Addresses Attendees at Celebration for AED Program

AED Saves Lives

The Doubletree Hotel in Pikesville, Maryland hosted a celebration of ten years since the inauguration of the AED project, a program established by Baltimore’s Project Ezra and the Chesed Fund.

Speaking at the celebration was Frank Storch, overseer of the Chesed Fund.

“Thousands of lives each year would be saved if more defibrillators were placed throughout the country. We, as the Jewish Nation, value life tremendously. The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Program shows achdus, unity, and our commitment to help all Jewish people, regardless of their affiliations,” Frank Storch said.
