Know the Drill – Safe and Effective School Emergency Operations Exercises

presented by Michael Dorn or Russell Bentley

Typical presentation times range from two hours to a full day

Untested school safety plans are sound only in theory and significant plan failure has occurred in almost every instance of a major school crisis where plans had not been tested through properly conducted exercises.  One of the nation’s top experts will guide participants through the FEMA and Jane’s models for a progressive and appropriate series of exercises tailored to the school environment.  The presenter coordinated the nation’s largest school exercise program – a two year process culminating in a full scale exercise for more than 200 schools and 15,000 role players.

Intended audiences:

  •     School administrators
  •     School transportation directors
  •     School security officers
  •     Law enforcement officers
  •     Public safety personnel involved with school safety
  •     School board members and elected officials
  •     Emergency management and homeland security professionals

“The safe school training on emergency preparedness provided by Michael Dorn was comprehensive and practical.  The strategies provided to staff across our entire system will allow us to sustain our own training model.  It was excellent training for our school system!”
