When we worked with the Lincoln County School District in Oregon several years ago to produce a series of more than 30 school safety training videos, we were very impressed with a protocol they had included in their school crisis plans. The protocol is called a room clear protocol and had traditionally been thought of as a means to clear students quickly in a classroom for situations such as a medical emergency or a disruptive student. We realized that this simple but important protocol could also be utilized to move students out of any area in a school such as a media center, main office, gymnasium or cafeteria.
Many of our clients now utilize the room clear protocol to better protect their staff and students.
Chris Dorn and his awesome video crew are about to release another new school safety video on the importance of reverse evacuation protocols. Our crew is also working on another eight free school safety video podcasts and three new school safety training videos which will be released as they complete them.
