Safe Schools: Unified Emergency Contingency Plan for Schools.
Illinois State Police, Springfield.
This contingency plan is intended to stimulate emergency planning and provide an organizational tool for Illinois schools to use in the development of individual emergency plans. It may accommodate and complement a school's current contingency plan and will allow for the inclusion of additional material concerning school safety. It is intended as a basis upon which a school can build a complete and comprehensive plan to address a myriad of emergency/crisis/disaster situations. The guide opens with a list of points of contact and contingency-plan goals. It offers information on establishing contingency-plan goals, a school-safety tip line, crisis-management plans, crisis warning codes, and emergency communications. The second section provides information on emergencies and is grouped by topics: abduction, after-hours emergency, bomb threat, civil disturbance/student uprising/gangs, fire/explosion, hostage/barricaded subject, intruder in the building, natural disasters, threat of violence, and weapons possession/armed offender. Numerous suggestions for security issues are also offered, including school facility security, a school security assessment checklist, a security measures implementation survey, a school facility security assessment checklist, overview of school crime, high risk behavior, identifying high risk students, and predicting violent juvenile behavior.
