Federal Student Identification Number (SID #)
ICS 100
ICS 200

Schools, law enforcement, other emergency responders, and community stakeholders are often limited in their access to resources, so it is imperative that all potentially affected parties collaborate in planning, preparation, communication, response, and recovery in the event of a school-based incident. Moreover, these affected parties must come together to practice their interoperable skills through drills and exercise to ensure the strategies in place provide for an effective crisis response and collaborative recovery.
Utilizing an all hazards approach, this two-day course will provide content instruction, develop concept-specific skills, and provide opportunities of law enforcement, school personnel, and community stakeholders to collaboratively apply the course objectives in scenario-based applications.
