Train-The-Trainer AA-428 Multi-Hazard Emergency Planning for Illinois Schools
This 2 day course is a 15 hour instructor training to develop a core cadre of trainers who will provide technical assistance and serve as district training resources. The course is designed to provide the participants with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to develop effective emergency operations plans for a wide array of potential critical incidents schools may experience. Participants will learn about school emergency operations management and planning, hazard/risk analysis, terrorism/weapons of mass destruction, critical incident response procedures, training and testing plans, and participate in table-top drills. Training materials including instructor manuals, student manuals, CD’s with lesson plans, videos, power point presentations, and other instructional resources will be provided to each participant upon completion of the course. Schools should consider sending a two-person team including a school administrator (principal, assistant principal, dean, etc.) and a school resource officer/liaison/DARE officer (sworn), or school security officer. Participants are expected to conduct orientation sessions, in-service training and provide technical assistance to district administration for help with improving their school emergency and crisis response plans.
