Emergencies Are You Ready for the What If

This is the Planning part

Here we assess what types of incidents could occur, how many have occurred and what tools do we have to help us manage them if they do occur.

We put together a plan for how we would respond if it happened again.

NOTE: It may not be about getting fancy new equipment, it may be more about how we use what we already have!

How do we talk?

The debate about Code words has gone on forever.

The reality is, under stress, will everyone react the same way to a code phrase? Does everyone know the code phrase?

In the seconds it takes for the staff to recognize and recall the meaning of a code, the offender could have already taken lives. We want to reduce the delay in action, so we DO NOT RECOMMEND USE OF CODE WORDS.

Check with your District or school for the answer!
