This webinar breaks down key three areas of concern, logistics and considerations for those in the education sector.
People welfare & human considerations
Ensure that your staff and students are unseen, and unheard. Consider a method of activating people very quickly without causing stress and minimising disruption. Think about predetermined requirements like medication and/or toiletry needs and who will oversee this for which students. Be prepared for social media to play a part in an event and use it to your advantage. Educate all personnel on expectations in an event.
The Logistics of a Lockdown
Identify where you get key facts from to help to determine where and how you make your next decision. Predetermine where you get that source of information. Identify where and what the threat is. ‘Lockdown’; unseen or unheard. ‘Shelter in place’; not an immediate threat, but containment is required. Distinguish the definitions and make the different processes obvious to all involved.
Immediate Actions & Procedures
Look at what you already have in place and identify where to make improvements. Identify gaps in your capability and build up experience in these areas by validating decisions made by staff during training. Instil a culture of resilience through staff, students and parents. Trust your training and review through a scenario and after an event.
