This timely and comprehensive guide is designed to meet the security response needs of both educators and law enforcement personnel by detailing how an effective response plan can be developed to deal with the issue of school violence. By implementing the guidelines detailed in this book, those in responsible positions can help prevent the incalculable costs of death, facility destruction, disruption of operations, negative public perception, and the resulting embarrassment that these acts cause. The information presented will help reduce the amount of collateral damage to the threat area and adjacent areas. It is designed to expand the effectiveness and performance of special response police forces, fire department personnel, medical aid personnel and ancillary support personnel, as well as provide a comprehensive guide to school administrators and other educators who are concerned with school safety issues. The main idea behind this book is the principle of "saving lives when all other proactive means have failed." It focuses on the elements of rapid containment, area control, and the re-securing of the affected area. The author emphasizes that time is an essential factor: the longer the perpetrators remain active, the higher the likelihood that additional people will be killed. In addition, the book is designed to generate a detailed analysis of possible contingency plans for respective emergency responders. An analysis is also included that is site specific and which will help to streamline the planning efforts of all emergency responders, thus heightening personnel survivability and mission success. It is a must-read for those who are responsible for school safety and security.
