* In the U.S., due to the rash of school shootings most schools have a [=lockdown=] procedure that goes into effect if there's any report of a violent criminal or crime in (or even near) the school. All teachers are told to lock their doors until they get the all clear.
* On September 11, 2001, there were 4,200 planes in the air. Who knew which ones had terrorists waiting to strike? Obviously, cue Operation Yellow Ribbon and shut down airspace for two days.
* US government buildings usually have [=Lockdown=] procedures as well, in case of workplace violence or terrorism.
* NORAD in Cheyenne Mountain has a [=lockdown=] procedure to isolate itself from the world, including sealing a huge blast door.
* Zoos have [=Lockdown=] protocols to isolate dangerous and volatile animals from contact with humans or one another, either during routine transfers between exhibits or in the event of an escape.
