By day, Lance Sargent is a Nevada High School teacher and Justin Osburn runs a business.
“Currently, I’m the general manager at Max Motors in Nevada,” said Justin Osburn, Guardian Angel.
In their off time, they’re working on the Guardian Angel system.
“We feel that the Guardian Angel covers all of the basis. I mean, it’s sturdy. I mean, it’s made out of steel, it’s got a 10,000 pound winch on it,” said Lance Sargent, Guardian Angel.
Sargent says the system is designed to stop anyone who’s not supposed to be in a school, like an active shooter, from having access to a classroom. It’s designed to be simple enough for anyone to use. Inside is a winch, a ratchet and a can of mace. So just how fast can the Guardian Angel be deployed?
“We’ve closed some deals, we’ve got some installations lined up. We’ve got quite a few schools that are going to their boards in April, and we’re moving,” said Osburn.
Right now, Sargent and Osburn are at some point in negotiations with about 50 schools. They say the Guardian Angel is cheap, costing about the same as a text book, and can be installed in about 10 minutes.
“Our goal is to get it to where we can drop ship the units worldwide and installation can be done either by out sourcing it locally or in house,” said Osburn.
Osburn says patent for the Guardian Angel was awarded in December to the two men. For more information, you can visit the Guardian Angel website by clicking here.
