 TIPS TO CONSIDER

Assessment of Current Emergency Plans and Operations

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN ASSESSING YOUR CURRENT SCHOOL/DISTRICT EMERGENCY PLANS

When you assess your current emergency plans for a response, does your plan cover a wide array of incidents that could occur? This could be anything from a gas leak to an abduction of a student from a bus stop.  

 

Schools and districts are responsible for keeping students safe and we want to make sure your school/district is in a position to be ready to respond. Consider all of your plans and policies to determine if they meet the needs of your school/district community.

WHAT CURRENT RESOURCES DOES OUR SCHOOL/DISTRICT HAVE TO RESPOND TO INCIDENTS?

IF your school/district has an incident where an alternate reunification site is needed to reunify students with families, is your school/district able to bring tables, chairs, documents, radios, security, and equipment to set up within 1 hour of incident?

 

Does your school/district also have resources for food/water service, licensed social workers, and staff to provide for the reunification site? ​

 

We will help you plan and put a manual together for just-in-time training for a reunification site while actually training your team to be able to respond to the incident with confidence.

DO WE HAVE THE RIGHT PEOPLE TRAINED TO RESPOND TO SCHOOL/DISTRICT INCIDENTS?

Many staff at schools are educators and administrators that have been provided minimal training in emergency management.  

 

A question was asked at a recent seminar how many educators were trained in emergency management in their schooling to become an educator. Out of about 55 people in the room, 3 raised their hands. The rest have obtained small training that only covers very basic material in an hour. ​

 

Our Firm will provide the training and plans for your school/district while ensuring regular exercises are consistent similar to fire drills etc. schools are required to do.
