We’ve teamed up with Safe Havens International to host a FREE webinar tomorrow at 2 p.m. EST on how to improve emergency preparedness, communication and response in our nation’s schools. Following another incident of violence at a middle school in Nevada yesterday, we’re again reminded about the importance of situational awareness and the role of such technology in a school’s crisis plan, including how to notify on and offsite responders about what’s happening, where it’s happening, and what to do about it
Our guest speaker is Chris Dorn, an analyst with Safe Havens International. Chris is an expert in school security, weapons screening and law enforcement with more than a decade of experience in performing site assessments and emergency preparedness evaluations for schools across the country.
Join us to learn:
- The most common safety and security challenges schools face
- Whether your school has the protections you think it does
- How to avoid safety and security gaps
- Why situational awareness is key to life safety and security plus environmental monitoring and mass notification for a holistic approach to protection
It’s not too late to register to help your school better prepare, communicate and respond during an emergency – from an armed intruder to a natural disaster.
Plus webinar participants associated with a K-12 school, college or university will be eligible to win a SARA (Situational Awareness and Response Assistant) system valued at $10,000.
The winning school will be randomly selected from the list of eligible webinar participants and notified by Oct. 30, 2013.
If we put our heads and technology together, we can create safer and more effective education environments.
