This regional School Safety Academy Continuing Education event will feature information on Weather Awareness for Schools, Concerning Student Behaviors for School Support Staff and implementing an Incident Command System (ICS) for Schools

  • Weather Awareness for Schools
    Andy Bailey from the National Weather Service (NWS) will present on the importance of weather events and how they can impact schools. NWS products will be explained and how they can benefit schools.
  • Concerning Student Behaviors for School Support Staff
    This presentation will provide a framework for school support staff to report concerning student behaviors they may see in their execution of their job. The Power Point and handout will be made available to all participants so that they can train their staff.
  • ICS for Schools
    When an event like a school shooting or other emergency occurs, examples like the Robb Elementary shooting in Uvalde, TX, have shown us that chaos will likely ensue. Having a proven system for managing people and things is critical. Bob Klausmeyer from CES will provide an overview of the Incident Command System (ICS) used by first responders and explain how it can be incorporated by schools.

STOP THE BLEED®
Trainers from Truman Medical Center will provide a hands-on training to equip school personnel with the skills to administer first aid in a trauma situation. The purpose of the STOP THE BLEED® campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding. This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching people how to learn three quick actions to control serious bleeding. After successfully demonstrating learned skills, participants will receive a trauma first aid kit. This training is participatory and participants should be prepared to move and lift objects.
