Taking your business from planning to progress

Emergency Management for Schools and Institutions of Higher Education

Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes and can strike anywhere at any time. Perhaps it’s just a major school interruption created by interpersonal conflict or the threat of a violent incident. How about an unusable computer system with a virus, or a severe weather alert that impacts your instructional schedule? An emergency can be a catastrophic event like a tornado, hurricane, landslide, or flood. There are all kinds of emergencies that can impact and disrupt our lives and threaten the safety of our children. 

We’d like to think that when we drop our children off at school they are in the safest place in the world.  Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case.  And while we can’t make schools completely safe, we can make them as safe as they can be.

According to Save the Children, 21 states and the District of Columbia do not meet emergency planning standards.  Our solutions assure that you will have a multi-hazard plan that allows you to be prepared for any contingency from a lockdown during threat situations to cover and evacuation and recovery when during natural disasters.
