Disaster Man-Made Event Shootings Violent Acts Terrorism Protective Action Shelter in Place Lockdown Disaster Natural Event Tornado Storms Fire Protective Action Tornado Drill Fire Drill

Illinois law and district policy requires each school to conduct a specific number and type of drill each school year: 3 Fire Drills 1 Severe Weather/Tornado Drill 1 Bus Evacuation Drill 2 Lockdown Drills

Fire drill procedure is a means of evacuating the building in a quick and orderly manner. When events require the immediate evacuation of the building, the fire drill procedure will be used to accomplish that evacuation. (Fire...Gas Leak…Bomb Threat…Toxic Building) Building evacuation plans include the immediate evacuation to STAGING AREAS outside of the building. Each classroom has a map directing the classroom to its designated STAGING AREA

11 Tornado / Severe Weather Drill
Severe Weather can pose danger to the school population Most frequent concern is a Tornado Protective actions are to move the students to predetermined shelter areas in the building to protect them during severe weather Each classroom has a map directing the classroom to its designated SHELTER AREA

12 Joplin High School - Hallway

13 (the building is in state of heightened security)
Shelter in Place Protective action to give tighter security to the building and the school population (the building is in state of heightened security) Threat to the school is NOT immediate Shelter-In-Place procedures may be utilized in response to events that occur outside of the school building that could be dangerous: Hazardous material spill, chemical or biological release Gas leak, explosions, aircraft accident Criminal event

14 Lockdown – Secures the Classroom
Protective Action Violence

15 Lockdown and Crisis Management
What is a Lockdown? Protective actions taken to make the school and classrooms safer Locking down the classrooms…protecting our students against the harm of violence When do we use a Lockdown? (Violent threat on campus) Whenever a person is identified as causing harm or posing a significant threat to others Safety of the School Population is in Jeopardy Threat to the school IS immediate

16 Lockdown and Crisis Management
Lockdown Readiness Prepare, Plan and Practice for the worse case scenario Violence within the school Why Lockdowns? Secure our school / Secure our classrooms When the violent threat, staff and students are in the school……… without police intervention. Until the Police Arrive to Confront the Threat

17 Lockdown Concept violence (actual or threat of) on campus
building occupants to lock themselves away...if possible place as many physical barriers between us and the violent quickly as possible hide from view of the aggressor leave the building if it is unsafe until police arrive to neutralize the threat

18 Parent/Child Reunification
If a building becomes dangerous, a crime scene or uninhabitable the school population may be transported to one of the high schools Depending on the situation and type of event Parents will be notified by the Rapid Communication System The high schools are designated reunification centers Reunification Center: Location where parents are reunified with their child

19 Sandy Hook Elementary – Newtown Connecticut
armed attack....difficult if not impossible to prevent shooter forcefully entered school entered office area principal activated PA system no formal lockdown announcement was made open PA system – staff heard the conflict over the speakers...staff started to take lockdown actions shooter moved into school, attempted to open doors, if classroom door was locked, moved on to other doors

20 School Safety nothing…. absolutely nothing… is more important than the safety of our children

schools are still the safest place to be however… for our students and staff we have to prepare for the unthinkable
