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
Education for disaster preparedness
Education for disaster preparedness can provide life-saving and life-sustaining information and skills that protect in particular children and young people during and after emergencies. Disasters are not natural, they only occur when people lack preparedness or the ability to cope with hazards: it is the combination of an exposed and ill-prepared population or community with a hazard event that results in a disaster. Education therefore has a vital role to play in preparing communities and building disaster resilient societies and safe lives. UNESCO provides tools for integrating Disaster Risk Reduction into schools and provides training for teachers and educators on how to educate children and youth to prepare for disasters.

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.

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.

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.

Earthquake Drill in Japan
Earthquake Drill in Japan At public schools in Japan, earthquake drills are held from once a month to twice a year depending on the school. If an earthquake happens while they're in a classroom, the children learn to get under their desks, head first, and to hold on to the legs of the desk until the quake is over. After that the teacher leads them out of the building and calls the roll to make sure everybody is there and safe. This is practiced so that the students know what to do without thinking about it.

How to Prepare for an Emergency with Portable Sound Systems|Tips Plan Manage Preparedness Disaster
http://www.ampli.com/ Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Disaster-and-Emergency-Preparedness-Tips/179743945422339 http://blog.ampli.com/2010/02/using-portable-sound-systems-in.html http://www.facebook.com/AmplivoxPortableSoundSystems#!/pages/Amplivox-Portable-Sound-Systems-Lecterns/93731130740 http://twitter.com/Amplivox How to Plan and Manage Disaster Response Most organizations have a business continuity plan that includes detailed procedures for safety drills. 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.

InVision Secure School Safety Portal
Everyone agrees that school safety is more important than ever, and that emergency planning is a critical step in ensuring safe learning environments. But most emergency operations plans (EOP) stop at the outside of buildings, creating dangerous blind spots for emergency responders. PenBay Solutions has developed the InVision Secure School Safety Portal (IVS-SSP) to supplement existing emergency planning efforts, eliminate those blind spots, and provide a framework for sharing this information throughout school districts and with first responders. This comprehensive approach means that planners and first responders have access to critical information before, during, and after an incident to effectively reduce the impact on your students, teachers, staff and school facilities. The IVS-SSP is an easy-to-use, affordable, map-based system that integrates interior floor plans, emergency asset data and maps of the surrounding areas.

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.

Six Communication Tips for School Safety and Educational Success
http://www.ampli.com/ How do you put forth a clear voice and strong image when communicating in and around schools? Here are six proven tips. #1 Safety Always Comes First In any school emergency from weather to man-made crisis, be ready to communicate indoors or out with powerful battery powered PA systems. #2 Give Yourself Some Help Give teachers, coaches and administrators the voice reinforcement they need. Many people overestimate the power of their own voice. Even students with perfect hearing can miss up to one third of what teachers are saying from poor acoustics. Teachers who use PA systems get kids attention more easily and also experience less voice strain at the end of each day. PA systems for schools can be affordable, easy to use and a huge benefit to your message clarity and effectiveness. AmpliVox extends your voice with quality PA products designed for small audiences or large, indoors or out for emergencies or everyday learning and general communication. #3 Know Your Audience Size and Room Layout When speaking inside a classroom or auditorium, always plan for room acoustics and layout as well as audience size. There are AmpliVox systems designed to reach audiences from 50 to 10,000 with clear, natural sound. #4 Bring Portable Power to Outdoor Events Athletic fields, playgrounds or special events are no obstacle for being heard when they use battery powered megaphones or portable devices on wheels or tripods. For example, the AmpliVox Half-Mile Hailer lets your audience hear you loud and clear from a distance. #5 Be Ready for Multimedia Adding music, recorded messages or multiple speakers to your school presentation is not a problem with AmpliVox systems. They project auxiliary sound with the same strength and clarity of your own voice. Many students report getting more pumped up while listening to a professional grade sound system. #6 Create a Professional Image with Stylish Lectern A stylish lectern can enhance your image in the classroom or out. AmpliVox offers models ranging from table top to freestanding, with sound reinforcement or without, in wood, acrylic, steel or weatherproof hard shell plastic. To further enhance your image and promote school spirit lecterns can even be imprinted with your schools logo. Be prepared to support school safety, enhance learning and pump up school spirit with quality PA system. Extend your voice and project your image with AmpliVox.
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.

7 Ways to Survive Natural Disasters
How 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 about 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. TIMESTAMPS Hurricane 0:40 Tornado 1:45 Tsunami 3:15 Flood 4:10 Avalanche 5:03 Wildfire 6:00 Earthquake 7:00 SUMMARY - If a hurricane starts while you are driving, leave your vehicle and find a building to shelter in, or a ditch. Stopping in an overpass will not save you. If your home is a trailer and there is enough time to flee to a safe area – do it. - If a tornado starts when you are in a public building, follow the same rules. You want to stay as low as possible. Avoid windows and open spaces such as auditoriums, gyms, and large hallways. Desks and benches can give you some extra protection if you get under them. It is impossible to outrun a tornado. - Tsunamis are so fast they hit the coast minutes after the earthquake. Remember that tall buildings, including hotels right in the beach area, can provide an excellent shelter. In case a tsunami finds you at sea, stay there instead of going back to the coast. It won’t be a safe haven. - Don’t try to be the bravest person around and stay in your house once you hear the evacuation warning. Leave for safety in higher grounds with your important papers in a waterproof container. If a flash flood gives you no time to evacuate and the water is all around you, don’t try to swim across it. - When an avalanche starts, try to move to the side of the slope as fast as you can. There will be more snow in the center of the flow. To move faster, drop any heavy equipment you have on you. If you can’t escape it, try using a sturdy tree to keep you above the snow. - If you find yourself in a wildfire area, it is critically important to ensure that you can breathe. If you fail to do it, you can pass out in the midst of a danger zone. Use a wet cloth to cover your nose and mouth and escape to safety. - If an earthquake starts when you are inside, stay where you were. Experts say that during an earthquake you must drop to the floor, get underneath a table, cover your neck and head with one hand, and hold on with the other hand. Your entire body must be under the table. Don’t try to run out of the building - the exterior of a building is one of the most dangerous places.

Managing Disasters and Leading through Crises: Faculty Insight with Arnold Howitt
Crises and natural disasters are often highly chaotic and unpredictable. They are difficult for both responders on the ground and managers and commanders at a distance. In this faculty insight, instructor Arnold Howitt sits down with Jenny Attiyeh of ThoughtCast to discuss how organizations and responders can prepare themselves for high performance in these situations and what we have learned from large-scale disasters like Hurricane Katrina. Often, the keys to successful emergency preparation and relief management are proven leaders, practice, and appropriate allocation of funds. Howitt is the executive director at the Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation, an adjunct lecturer in public policy at Harvard Kennedy School, and instructor at Harvard Extension School. He teaches "Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness," http://www.extension.harvard.edu/courses/crisis-management-emergency-preparedness, and "Disaster Relief and Recovery," http://www.extension.harvard.edu/courses/disaster-relief-recovery. Both courses are available on-campus and online. Howitt is also an author and editor of several books, including "Managing Crises: Responses to Large-Scale Emergencies," which is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Managing-Crises-Responses-Large-Scale-Emergencies/dp/087289570X/.

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. You can watch the same presentation that Trustees watched by clicking here.

Back to School Crisis Management Issues for Higher Education
http://www.TheCrisisShow.com This was a special "Back to School" episode aimed at administrations of schools, colleges and universities everywhere. We had guests from the University of Louisville, New York University and Binghamton University to discuss crisis preparedness and crisis communications on campus. In light of a bomb threat at the University of Texas at Austin and a similar threat at North Dakota State University-- both on September 14, 2012 -- we think this is a good time for leaders to revisit this episode.
