SCHOOL & CAMPUS SECURITY WEBINAR SERIES: Part 3 of 4 (Oct. 24th)
Community Engagement: How to Create Clear Communication Between School Administrators, Teachers, Parents & First Responders (Hosted by PASS & SIA)
School emergency preparedness requires a greater interdependence between school and community leaders such as fire, police, emergency medical services, public health, mental/behavioral health, and emergency management personnel. This collaboration helps create a dynamic and interactive environment where the school-based administrator’s authority can be transformed and shared through a single voice with a collective message about emergency management priorities, security concerns and responsive actions. Depending on the scope of the incident, this may mean that administrators need to share responsibility in decision-making with community partners, hand control over to the incident commander from first responding agencies, or possibly maintain their autonomy in an emergency. School district- and school-based administrators’ actions in advance of incidents are critical to the success of emergency management efforts at all levels of the school community.
- Understanding the benefits of collaborating with community partners
- Determining the advantages of school emergency management
- Helping define administrative roles before, during, and after an incident
- Establishing emergency management objectives and schedules
- Focusing trainings for administrators and staff on real events
