Crisis Response and Emergency Management

In a natural or man-made disaster, events occur that necessitate the coordination and delivery of crisis intervention and response services. And with a mobile society, the need for standardization of these plans throughout the state is imperative.

The Emergency Management Guide provided here, developed through a grant from the Federal Safe and Drug Free Schools Program, is not intended to be a stand-alone document; the training component is critical to understand the rationale behind the development of the strategies and process. Please contact KCSS for information about training opportunities.

Different from the Safe Schools Plan required by law, Crisis Response Plans detail protocol beginning with preparedness through fact-gathering, systematic risk assessment, team building, communication and training, and include response and recovery segments, which hopefully may never see the need to be used. It provides a research-based foundation for the protocol and emergency management procedures necessary in the event of any crisis and, through training, creates an atmosphere of calm in what may otherwise be chaos.

Some districts/schools may prefer to work with a single electronic document. Please note that this complete document contains section breaks and other formatting to facilitate pagination, which begins anew with each section. The Emergency Management Guide and all its components are formatted in Adobe Acrobat/Acrobat Reader. Click the link below to download the Emergency Management Guide in its entirety.

The Emergency Management Guide has been developed with federal Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Act funds, and may be reproduced for individual school and district use. the guide may not be reproduced in any form for sale or unauthorized distribution.
