School Safety: A Practical Approach To Proactive Implementation

2:32 PM, Aug 13, 2019

We focus on an All-Hazards realistic and proactive approach to school safety planning and training.

Learning cannot occur in an unsafe environment, since the brain does not take in information in the fear mode.

Schools need to prepare today in order to survive a man made or natural hazard tomorrow.

How you plan and train is how you will respond during an actual incident, so pre-planning saves lives.

It is up to the school to ensure they are in compliance with state and federal school safety statutes.

Failure to be in compliance with laws and best practices can result in injuries, fatalities, and civil liabilities.

Your emergency plan is the start of your emergency management program, not the completion of it.

Without training, target hardening, and sustainability, the school emergency plan is worthless. -Safe school culture and climate is of paramount importance to Social Emotional Learning.
