School Safety Symposium
Date of Event
The one common refrain from schools and communities that have suffered horrific loss of life has been, “I did not think it could happen here!” Small towns, suburbs, elementary and junior highs are not exempt from acts of violence and natural disasters. Successful management of emergencies can only be accomplished through effective and pre-established plans and procedures. This symposium offers you the opportunity to learn from experts in the field of school safety and emergency management in order to gain the necessary information to prevent, respond and recover from any event. Each attendee will be able to hear presentations, ask questions and leave with a toolkit of materials to take home with you to jump start your planning. It is highly recommended that, at a minimum, teams of two people attend so they can return home with a partner who understands the information and with whom joint planning can begin.
