Preparing for violence in schools has been at the forefront of administrators’ agendas for the past quarter century.
Efforts have been made to create secure campus environments and identify threats in order to prevent these tragedies from occurring. Unfortunately, the numbers show us that violence on campus is escalating.
When a crisis does occur, saving lives and reducing casualties needs to be the number one priority of emergency response efforts.
The resilience of our campuses is directly correlated with the preparation of our staff and the options in place to respond to a crisis. Student attacks are an enormous threat to our campuses today, and every school should be ready to respond.
The principles of this webinar are espoused by the Dept. of Homeland Security and the American College of Surgeons.
Key points of discussion for this webinar:
• The likelihood of a threat starting inside a classroom/building
• The importance of quick notifications to emergency services
• Essential elements of taking action until help arrives
• Why a centralized approach fails in a lockdown situation
• The best tools to prepare staff to respond in a crisis to reduce casualties and save lives
