K-12 Emergency Terminology
This webinar was created to standardize your district’s emergency terminology and getting everyone on the same sheet of music when it comes to disaster terminology. It is extremely important not only to train your school site and inner district, but to train with your public safety partners, especially #911 dispatch centers, to make sure we understand each other in a crisis. This webinar will assist in bridging the communication gap, ensuring that we are aligning our crisis communication with best practices.
Critical Issues in Campus Safety for K-12
Large-scale emergency incidents and disasters can occur anywhere on any school campus. When they do, all eyes will fall on the Campus Emergency Team. As a responsible educator, you will be critically evaluated on your preparedness and your schools’ ability to manage the crisis event. This course is designed to both refresh and train your Campus Emergency Management Team and to give them the tools that will enable them to manage a wide variety of emergency situations. The participants will be exposed to case studies and practical exercises that will allow them to apply the principles taught in class.
