Catastrophic Events Resource Manual

$55.00

The Catastrophic Events Resource Manual divides responses to life-threatening events on campus into four categories:

  • I – Saving Lives (the Rapid Response Team [RRT] mobilization to the hot spot)
  • II -Keeping those out of the zone of emergency safe (simultaneous to RRT mobilization)
  • III -From reunification through start-up of school (dealing with crime scene, student and parent meetings for re-establishing a sense of trust and safety)
  • IV -From the return to school through follow-up (the next 1 – 5 years)

Ms. Lovre has taken the lessons learned from responding at school shootings, New York following 9/11, natural disasters and a host of smaller events to put the response efforts into a process designed to work within the NIMS/ICS structure (Incident Command and National Incident Management System). This book is a compliment to the Crisis Resource Manual, which organizes the response to the more common, ordinary kinds of deaths and crises that schools face.
