Prevention-Mitigation - Emergency Management for Schools Training, February 22, 2007, Philadelphia, PA [video] [open video - 0B]
This one hour web cast on prevention-mitigation in schools aims to assist schools and school personnel in improving their overall preparedness efforts. Key messages outlined in this webcast include: prevention-mitigation is designed to assess and address the safety and integrity of facilities, security and culture and climate of schools; prevention-mitigation builds on what schools are already doing; schools need to take an all-hazards approach when assessing risks and vulnerabilities; prevention-mitigation is an ongoing process that is directly linked to the other three phases of emergency planning; and strong community partnerships and leadership support facilitates a more comprehensive prevention-mitigation strategy. Note: This web cast can be played in conjunction with the Prevention-Mitigation PowerPoint that was presented at the training (http://rems.ed.gov/views/documents/PreventionMitigation_Philadelphia_Breakout.ppt).
