Crisis Management in a Rural School: Webcast

Initially presented as a 2-hour live webcast, this course is designed to introduce principles and techniques for a coordinated response between first responders and the school systems. The training is intended for all first responders, school administrators and personnel, and other support agencies, such as emergency management, and elected/appointed officials, who have a role in response to a crisis situation in a school environment.

This is not tactical response training, but an examination of the actions that will take place among all entities involved in order to better understand the challenges and opportunities facing rural school jurisdictions. The archived version of the live broadcast includes a moderated panel of subject matter experts addressing issues for consideration by participants based on a pre-recorded video scenario involving an active shooter and hostage incident.
