    School is a place where students should feel safe and secure. Parents want to know that their children are secure. However, natural disasters, violence and other emergencies could occur at any time. Is your school prepared? Is everyone in your school safe? Does everyone know what to do during an emergency? Recent acts of violence around the nation, especially in public settings, including schools, bring to light the reality that schools need to be proactive in taking safety and security measures to prevent and deter school violence. They also need to be prepared for any other emergency situation that could occur.

    We, at IU8, want everyone to be safe and can help you and your team prepare for potential emergencies. That is why we partnered with five service providers, who specialize in the area of safety and security, to put together emergency preparation packages that can help you take steps toward effective
    emergency preparedness. The packages we offer include a wide range of professional learning opportunities and services such as:

    • All Hazards Plan Review and Development
    • Risk and Vulnerability Assessments
    • Front Line Training
    • Independent Investigations
    • Violent Intruder/Active Shooter Drill Preparation
    • Threat Assessment Training
    • Emergency Response Team Training
