SCHOOL SAFETY AND SECURITY TRAINING AND SERVICES OFFERED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF FINDLAY’S ALL HAZARDS TRAINING CENTER.
SCHOOL SAFETY/SECURITY TRAINING COURSES:
Professional Development/In-Service Seminars on School Safety and Security
This half day seminar is unsurpassed in creating a level of general awareness among your entire staff. It is only after staff members adequately understand all the threats and vulnerabilities that they can work to mitigate, and effectively respond to, the various crisis situations that occur on our nation’s campuses on an increasingly regular basis
National Incident Management System (NIMS)
Attending this course will bring your college’s administrative staff into compliance with Presidential Directive 5—which requires certain school officials to understand and be able to operate under the NIMS concept. This course will:
- educate the participants on NIMS for colleges
- allow these administrators to serve as trainers to their building/department levelstaff regarding site specific security response roles in a crisis.
Virtual Reality Training will allow your staff to practice making decisions to de-escalate a crisis situation in the halls, classroom, bus, or any other area of your campus. This cutting edge technology places your staff in a controlled environment to practice their dispute resolution skills and review and debrief on how they could best reduce the “stressors” and minimize the likelihood for a physical assault against themselves or students. This instructional equipment then allows your staff to revisit the same or similar scenarios, and the related teaching points to apply what they learned to perfect such skills as; tone of voice, word selection, proximity, and disciplinary actions.
University Transportation Security
This course allows participants to:
- refine their skills in situational awareness;
- better understand the vulnerabilities and responsibilities they face while working in the transportation sector.
Behavioral Health Emergency Recovery
This course allows participants to:
- investigate stress response assessment--normal reactions to abnormal situations,
- present appropriate support during and after an incident,
- identify the degree of impact upon others and themselves, as well as site specific special needs evaluation and preplanning
SCHOOL SAFETY/SECURITY SERVICES:
Refining/Developing Safety/Security Plans
The University has authored and co-authored a variety of effective emergency operating procedures for a number of clients across the U.S. If your plans have not been edited for three or more years, or if you have seen an increase in your student population, or if you have been fortunate enough to add a wing or new structure, your plans need to be reassessed to ensure compliance and safety for your students and staff.
Tabletop & Full Scale Exercises for Security Plan Tests
Do they actually work in a real life situation? A plan on a shelf is worthless. When a crisis impacts your campus it is the behavioral responses from staff and officials that
save the lives of students. It is only through drills and exercises that we can hope to respond to the best of our abilities when tragedies occur on our campuses.
Physical Security Device Recommendations
This is an unbiased assessment of your requirements, and your building’s physical environments, to recommend the best layout of security equipment, allowing you to avoid the high pressure sales tactics of many vendors
Vulnerability Assessment ~ Covert Video
Assessment professionals will identify your likely threats and, in a span of 24 hours, will attempt to gain access to your buildings and perform some targeted “harm," or disruption. While covertly filmed and recorded, these assessments are conducted without disrupting the educational process, and yet allow your campus community to see and hear your security weaknesses. You will be surprised to see that it is often times the actions of faculty, staff, and officials that afford perpetrators the opportunity to penetrate your facilities security layers and provide them with multiple opportunities to do harm.
