School Basic Emergency Plan
If disaster struck your school today how would you or should you operate?
In any school crisis, school administrators are the first responders. At what point should a crisis be turned over to other agencies? What responsibilities do administrators assume once that happens? Additionally, Senate Bill 5097, requires all building principals to be ICS certified.
Attendees of the half-day "If Disaster Struck Your School" workshop will learn strategies for establishing a chain of command, working with other first responders (fire, police) and finding order in chaos. This workshop fulfills the ICS certification requirements and is designed for principals, assistant principals, school resource officers and others responsible for school safety.
For more information contact the Association of Washington School Principals and ask about the the course: If Disaster Struck Your School Today (ICS Certification).
