Emergency Preparedness Plans – Part One
Recent events have generated increasing questions about safety and security both in and out of school. It is imperative that schools and after school programs develop effective crisis and security plans that not only promote the safety and welfare of our youth, but also protect staff and property. Preparedness is the key to security and safety, so youth and staff must practice appropriate responses to a crisis before it occurs. This two-part interactive training will discuss crisis-management policies, guidelines and procedures that your program can utilize during an emergency.
