Response - Emergency Management for Schools Training, February 22, 2007, Philadelphia, PA [video] [open pdf - 0B]
This one hour web cast on response in schools aims to assist schools and school personnel in improving their overall preparedness efforts. Key messages outlined in this web cast include: effective response involves pre-planning with community partners; pro-active efforts in the prevention-mitigation and preparedness phases will impact the quality of response; responses to emergencies will vary depending upon the severity and intensity of the event; responses to emergencies involve informed decision-making and clear identification of lines of decision-making authority; there are three key response actions: evacuation, lock-down, and shelter-in-place; and after-action briefings and reports are an integral part of the emergency planning continuum. This web cast can be played in conjunction with the response PowerPoint that was presented at the training (http://rems.ed.gov/views/documents/ResponsePhiladelphia_Breakout.ppt).
