Video on Designing Schools for Improved Emergency Preparedness for Special Needs Populations is Available at no cost Through the Federal Government

Safe Havens was selected to produce a free downloadable video relating to emergency preparedness considerations for special needs persons for the American Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities which is funded by the United Sates Department of Education.  The video uses footage filmed and edited by Safe Havens International Video.  This four minute video covers a number of significant issues for school safety considerations for students, staff and visitors with special needs.

The video is focused on school design features and is geared towards educators, school safety officials, architects and others who help design and build schools.  This video is a valuable resource for people who are involved with new school construction and renovation projects.

Update: As of May 1, 2015, this resource is now available through the Texas Center for Educational Facilities youtube page.
