JUST CE66 - Crisis Response Planning

To effectively respond to critical incidents (violence, suicide, tragedy, etc.), schools, communities and organizations need to plan ahead of time so they are prepared to respond to these unfortunate events. This training will focus on how to organize effectively and quickly at a time of high stress so that groups are better prepared to respond to the emotional needs of those affected by a critical incident. A key component of the training is review of a Crisis Response Checklist, an important tool when managing the complexities of a critical incident. Participants will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of how to implement their own crisis response team and plan for their specific environment.

Please note that for the purpose of this workshop, “crisis response” refers to the steps that are made after a critical incident. This is not a threat assessment or emergency preparedness workshop.
