Now more than ever, schools across the country are asking “how do we conduct emergency response drills within a school setting without traumatizing students and staff?” This can be a tricky balance. Recent events of school violence and active shooters have school leaders examining policies and procedures to ensure an appropriate response. With that comes practicing drills. During this interactive Joffe Emergency Services webinar, we will help school leaders rebuild their confidence and prepare to run effective, successful, and impactful lockdown drills with their community with a trauma-informed approach. 

Leaders will leave this session with an understanding of:

  • Best practices for effective lockdowns
  • Adapting lockdown practices for different scenarios and environments
  • How to respect the emotional needs of students, faculty, and families during lockdown drills
  • Effective debrief strategies that build on progress and plan for improvements
