The recent, however unfortunate, school tragedies have demonstrated the need to prepare for similar incidents. With increasing frequency, schools, churches and other organizations are realizing that the lack of planning may contribute to unnecessary injury or even the loss of life. A professionally prepared crisis management plan, and its associated training, is an effective tool in helping to prepare for similar incidents as well as non-criminal crises. PLE Group’s Crisis Management Plan, custom designed for your school, church, business or organization is completely consistent with FEMA’s recommendations and the Ohio Revised Code for School crisis management plans, is comprised of nearly every conceivable crisis and includes:
· An emergency operations plan, which is a single document containing protocols for addressing and responding to serious threats to the safety of property, students, children, employees, or administrators. Each protocol includes procedures including such things as notification of appropriate law enforcement and emergency response personnel and informing parents of affected children.
· A floor plan that is unique to each floor of the building;
· A site plan that includes all building property and surrounding property;
· An emergency contact information sheet.
PLE’s Crisis Management Plan has been reviewed by a number of superintendents, police departments, and other emergency responders. Furthermore, upon purchase, a “working” document will be provided to the school district or organizational leadership to review. Leadership can then make and submit any required changes to the working document, and PLE will amend the plan to fit the needs of your team.
PLE’s staff consists of experienced, security personnel, all of whom have experience performing security assessments, writing security procedures and crisis contingency plans. The entire PLE Security & Investigations staff is committed to the success and improvement of your organization(s) and will work as a partner to improve the protection of students, children, teachers, administrators, staff, employees, facilities, and other valuable assets.
