School Safe Crisis Communication System.
http://www.psicompany.com/schoolsafe-nims-emergency-incident-command-system/ Over the past few years we have made great strides in improving school districts’ ability to communicate during emergency situations. There is a solution that can make communication even better. Whether natural disasters, school lock downs, emergency situations, or medical emergencies, your district(s) could have in place a system to communicate with key public safety personnel with the push of a radio button. The system is called SchoolSAFE and is not a temporary patch or radio bridge, but rather, a network with hands-on training and a physical system that is permanently installed into both the school and the public safety data networks. SchoolSAFE allows for quick activation and deactivation as well as alerting all appropriate personnel. The result is a simpler, faster communication between schools and first responders. The SchoolSAFE solution not only provides interoperability but also provides a complete training curriculum that complies with public safety’s NIMS and ICS requirements

Emergency Preparedness with BeSafe | Testimonials from Schools and Law Enforcement
http://www.BeSafe.net | Emergency Preparedness with BeSafe | Testimonials from Schools and Law Enforcement BeSafe's Mission: Helping SAVE LIVES...by providing critical information to the right people, at the right time. Over the past decade we have seen, with tragic results, how natural disaster and reckless acts of violence, such as the steep rise in the incidence of school shootings, can impact a school facility or campus. It has become evident that an emergency management plan without easily accessible critical infrastructure information is problematic. To ensure safety and effectively resolve emergencies, educational institutions need a complete system that fully engages and integrates with all emergency response teams. BeSafe's award-winning response system facilitates the sharing of important tactical information between school administrators and emergency first responders in real time, providing critical multi-dimensional information. BeSafe delivers accurate and detailed information including interactive digital floor plans, building demographics and any unique features found on site, and places this information directly in the hands of police, fire, SWAT and other emergency teams. In the event of an emergency, information is instantly accessible so critical decisions can be made quickly and effectively. The sad reality is that no one can stop really bad things from happening. Have a plan. Practice lockdown drills. Be prepared. BeSafe.
7 Ways to Survive Natural Disasters
Here’s a list of survival tips that can save your life in an emergency. We live in a time when natural disasters occur more and more often and get more and more devastating. Many of us believe we should blame the human race for that. Whether it’s true or not, we all want to know how to survive when those disasters happen. Some rules are universal for most natural disasters. A national campaign called Ready was started in the United States to inform the population on how to get ready for and survive in different emergency situations. It recommends having a basic survival kit to provide you with the most important things just in case. Remember you will need to have enough food, water, and other supplies for at least 72 hours after the disaster. “Other supplies” include a battery powered weather radio, flashlight, first aid kit, a whistle, a dust mask, personal sanitation items (such as moist towelettes), pliers, can opener for food, maps of your area and an emergency cell phone with backup batteries.

Supporting Students and Schools in the Aftermath of Crisis
Crisis can impact students and staff on a mass scale during a major school emergency. Crisis can also strike on a personal level with a family matter. Regardless of how it hits, crisis can impair a student's capacity to learn. It also can have short- and long-term effects on their psychological functioning, emotional adjustment, health, and developmental trajectory. David Schonfeld, childhood bereavement expert, offers a thoughtful discussion on this difficult topic.

School Safety Video for School Lockdown Emergencies
School Safe helps keep students and staff safer in the event of a lockdown emergency. It is a simple device that installed on a classroom door allows the door to be quickly and easily secured from inside the classroom during a lockdown. In the event of a school lockdown most schools do not have the facility to lock a classroom door from inside the room. Typically, in an emergency situation, the teacher has to find their keys, go into the hall and lock the door, putting themselves and their students at risk of exposure, then come back into the room and shut the door locking themselves in. At the same time they have to get their students into a safe location in the room and cover any windows. This a lot of time and is potentially dangerous. School Safe minimizes the risk of exposure by allowing the door to be closed and locked at all times while still allowing ingress and egress without the need of a key. In an emergency simply pull School Safe down and the door latches. This takes only seconds and secures the room quickly and efficiently. School Safe is very affordable and easy to install by school maintenance or custodial staff. To learn more watch our ordering and installation videos on our web site.

Crisis On Campus: Shots Fired
The tragic event that occurred at Virginia Tech has reinforced our commitment to the safety of our college community. In a proactive approach to all crisis situations, SUNY New Paltz has in place a comprehensive emergency response plan. When this plan is activated, an emergency response team coordinates action from specific departments to immediately handle the situation. The team also initiates a crisis communication and notification plan. Campus Police are certified New York State police officers and consistently trained for crisis situations, similar to the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech. This includes how to secure the campus, immediately protect potential victims, and evacuate an area or building if necessary. Along with the college's emergency response plan, campus police work cooperatively with all area law enforcement and emergency response agencies in responding immediately as outlined in the countywide emergency response plan.

How to Survive an Active Shooter
In 2011, the State Office of Risk Management produced an Active Shooter Emergency Preparedness video advising office employees on addressing an active shooter event in the workplace. In light of recent events, the Office has released a new video to stress the importance of developing a procedure should an armed intruder enter your workplace. The updated video includes footage from a recent active shooter drill conducted at the Office, with the assistance from the security team from the Texas Attorney General’s Office, and support from the Texas Department of Public Safety. The current national protocol for employees in an active shooter situation in the workplace is Run, Hide, Fight, which is highlighted in this video. Additional protocols do exist, and whether your entity chooses to adopt Run, Hide, Fight or another alternative, the importance is to assign a procedure and practice through drills and exercises. Run Hide Fight® is a registered mark of City of Houston's Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security, a Department of Homeland Security Grant Funded Project.

Lockdown at Elementary School Prompts Leaders to Use Crisis
BEAVERCREEK -- A threatening call to an elementary school has Beavercreek on high alert.Main Elementary was placed on lock down and police were at the school all day. The lockdown was part of the district's crisis plan, that's required by the State Attorney General.And parents while concerned about the threat, were happy to see it work."First thing she said when she walked out the door was that she liked the donuts that she got today so she was not at all stressed out and she had a wonderful happy day," said Patricia Lozano.Lozano picks up her 6-year-old daughter from school every day, but Tuesday things were different."The idea of anything happening to them is obviously devastating," said Lozano.Beavercreek Police had several cruisers outside the school all day.The district says they received a threatening phone call Tuesday morning and set their crisis plan into motion."You think of everything that's happened and you definitely have your heartbeat increase for a little while," said Lozano.District leaders must send a crisis or school safety plan to the Ohio Board of Education.The Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine set it up after the school shooting at Chardon High School in February 2012."In some ways it makes me sad that we're even at the point in time that we need it but also very grateful that they're thinking ahead and trying to make sure that everyone stays as safe as possible," said Lozano.Out of 613 school districts in Ohio all have submitted their plans.However, a handful of them aren't complete.But Beavercreek school leaders prepare often for an emergency."Knowing that they're running drills leads you to believe that they're thinking ahead about this kind of stuff," said Lozano, "I can't imagine the overwhelming feeling it is for them too and I'm just extremely grateful."Each district must submit a school safety plan every three years with the Ohio Attorney General's Office. District leaders sent a one call a mass alert to parents saying they were free to pick up their children if they chose.

How to Prepare for an Emergency with Portable Sound Systems|Tips Plan Manage Preparedness Disaster

However, some plans fail to account for the different situations that may actually occur. While effective emergency planning for multiple scenarios is important, testing and communicating emergency plans is critical to determining their effectiveness. What are the Emergency Planning Issues? A recent article in Popular Mechanics pointed out that in the first moments of a disaster, roughly 10% of people panic, while 80% of the people essentially do nothing. Unable to come to terms with what's happening, they freeze. The remaining 10% jump into action. One of the points of conducting emergency drilling is to train the 10% to jump into action to begin coordinating activities to get the 80% doing the right things. Communicating the action plan quickly and effectively prevents the panic group from influencing the behavior of the 80% awaiting further instruction. Managing Complex Facilities Safety compliance and emergency preparedness can be a complicated undertaking in facilities involving transient populations such as hospitals, educational campuses, and busy company headquarter buildings with frequent visitor traffic. An Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Manager at a large medical facility points out that there are many different types of drills that need to be conducted, often with different actions required. He is responsible for conducting up to 24 drills per year including: -Evacuation drills -- fire, water, earthquake -Relocation to safer place drills -- tornado, severe weather, bio-hazard -Lock down drills -- threats of violence; stay in place until responders can arrive Each of these drills requires a different set of logistics planning and execution. Having a procedure manual sitting on the shelf is not effective if action plans cannot be implemented immediately where the action is: in the stairwells, above the noise of the manufacturing plant or down the busy halls of a medical center. Throw in the wildcards of interrupted power, potential building damage or rapidly changing conditions, and the best laid plans may not survive the first couple of minutes of an actual emergency which are often the most critical. Portable Sound Systems Enhance Your Emergency Planning Execution Portable sound systems can help your emergency planning leaders effectively communicate during the critical stages of the emergency. By having these leaders use this type of communication equipment, they can effectively override the noise, commotion and sense of panic that can impair any organized emergency plan. New portable wireless technology lets the emergency planning leaders move about the facility without being tethered by electrical or speaker cords. Shoulder straps and waist-belt style units make for an effective "grab 'n go" situation when time is critical. There are also long range weatherproof systems which are ideal for directing emergency crews and crowd control in larger areas. These units are ideal for situations that may require moving personnel from indoor facilities to an inclement outdoor environment where the elements may add to the complexity of the emergency. Regularly scheduled emergency drills will give emergency participants a chance to test out the sound system equipment to make sure you are comfortable with its use. These drills will also allow you to practice positioning yourself in various areas to determine your effectiveness. Documenting the results of these drills will provide future emergency planning leaders in your organization an idea of what works best. Remember, communication, regardless of the method, has historically been the biggest factor in the success of a plan, or in the case of miscommunications, its ultimate failure.

Flight or Fight School: Planning for a Crisis
A crisis communications plan is critical for all businesses. When you are in crisis is too late. Join me as we hear from Marketing Communications Expert, Linda Zimmer . Linda is person to follow, know and learn from.  She can be found EVERYWHERE that is digital and is called upon from companies and institutions around the world for guidance, planning and education.  Highlights include: 13:03 - What is a REAL crisis? It's in REAL time and needs to be dealt with NOW 13:48 - Small businesses need a plan more than ever because one crisis can take out your company. 14:15 - Remembering how the big change in Google search semantics has affected many small businesses who relied on keyword stuffing, SEO the "old way" 14:45 Google can change their algorithms overnight - if that's what you count on, then that has be part of your plan. 20:15 - Social media is about 23:54 - Know what your company represents 24:11 - Without a known message and tone, your response can become fragmented causing more damage to your company than the crisis itself 30:29 - seeking legal council with your plan 37:39 - GEM: Know the difference between being right and being effective. 40:00 - GEM: Ask the question, "What can derail our success?" - those are your hotspots 44:28 - Caution against only relying on online media to get your crisis situation plan deployed. You need to include more traditional forms of communication because perhaps it's your site and the internet that have gone down and your phone lines are exploding with frustrated customers. 51:00 - Who is creating your corporate message and maintaining it online? Was it the intern? The person who no longer works there? You need to have access to ALL accounts GRAB EVERY PROFILE/VANITY URL with your name, your company name or brand name or someone else will. This will give a consistent message and the public will know it's coming from you and will not be confused. This is not an event to be missed. Linda, who is a collaborative, liquid being said it would be great to get a couple of additional experts in the discussion in the filmstrip.

Firestorm and RenWeb present: School & Workplace Recovery
Firestorm and VAIS present: School & Workplace Recovery – Finding a Place to Work & Learn Post Natural Disaster Could your school survive a crisis? As we learned from numerous major disasters – from civil unrest to weather related crises, a crisis will significantly interrupt your school. How do you maintain seamless business continuity even if your office or campus are severely hit by natural disaster or a major upheaval? How can you increase the likelihood that employees will be willing and able to travel to an alternate school during difficult times? With the rise in technology and changing needs of employees, it’s not surprising that the popularity of traditional recovery solutions is in decline. But by comparing traditional business continuity plans and mobile solutions, it is clear that there is a widening gap between companies’ requirements and the recovery options available. This gap is increasingly being filled by flexible workplace recovery, which utilizes a number of flexible office and co-working spaces, offering a real alternative for the future. In this session, Firestorm CEO and President Jim Satterfield discusses what options are available when even the most well-built, resilient facilities become inaccessible following a significant widespread disaster. You need to know you options in order to keep your school viable. Firestorm® is America’s Crisis Coach® Since 2005, Firestorm has assisted clients in transforming crisis into value.

FWISD Know The Plan
Fort Worth, Texas -- If you "Know The Plan," you know what to do! That's the simple message behind the new "Know The Plan" website launched by the Fort Worth ISD earlier this year. Now, it's even easier to "Know The Plan" by just watching the new "Know The Plan" video! Know The Plan is the name given to Fort Worth ISD's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) for dealing with unexpected emergencies. The need to prepare is real. Personal or community emergencies disrupt thousands of lives each year. Being prepared and knowing what to do can reduce fear, anxiety and losses that accompany localized events and wide spread disasters. Awareness and preparation may reduce the impact of a disaster and possibly even avoid one altogether. Know The Plan was recently presented to the District Board of Education. The development of this tool was a collaborative project of parents, grandparents, caregivers and many different administrative departments.

A Game Plan Gives You Peace of Mind in an Emergency
Having a plan means you can relax until you see your 'markers' happening. Write down with your spouse what you would do it 'A' happened, and if it went past 'A", what would you do then? Especially discuss points where you would pull kids from school or stop going to church and work because then you are aware of the events unfolding so that you can act appropriately. Make sure to be on good terms with neighbors and talk to them about it because in emergencies they are your worst enemies or your greatest ally! Know Your Neighbor!

Check out Breaking Point - Indian Submariners Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGjp8blaaZ8&index=4&list=PL03W8AlrexroGzo5kdmm426PL56-f7XZk पनडुब्बी एस्केप ट्रेनिंग आईएनएस सातवाहाना, नौसेना पनडुब्बी स्कूल के महत्वपूर्ण अभ्यासों में से एक है। वीर बाइ डिस्कवरी हरमन के साथ, आपातकालीन स्थिति के दौरान पनडुब्बी से सुरक्षित बाहर निकालने की ड्रिल पर डॉक्युमेंटरी प्रस्तुत करता है। This documentary explains how submarines work. There are many physics principles involved that help the Submarines to dive upto 800 feet in the sea. Submarines have internal and external ballast tanks which are filled with air when it is above the water and when the submarine has to dive in, it is filled with water. Diving planes help the submarine to go up and down while the vertical rudders help in navigating left or right. When the submarine has to come above the sea, water in ballast tanks is flushed out with pressurized air that makes the submarine light in weight.
