On Monday, November 25th at 1:00 p.m. EST, the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS) along with its Readiness and Emergency Management (REMS) Technical Assistance (TA) Center and our Federal partners hosted a webinar pertaining to Federal resources that enhance campus security and emergency management planning. This session supported the emergency operations plan guidance put forth in the Obama Administration’s recently released Guide for Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans and Guide for Developing High-Quality Emergency Operations Plans for Institutions of Higher Education. These new Guides, developed by ED in collaboration with the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security, led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); Justice, led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); and Health and Human Services (HHS), represent the culmination of years of work by the Federal government.

As part of the President's "Now Is The Time" plan (released January 2013) to reduce gun violence in our schools and communities, Federal agencies have committed to helping our nation's educators and local officials make our schools, institutions of higher education (IHEs), and communities safer. This webinar provided a brief summary of some of the Federal resources available to IHEs, providing participants with the necessary information to access key resources, products, and services to enhance security and emergency management and planning.

The webinar included an introduction of the following Federal programs and resources:

  • U.S. Department of Education’s IHE emergency management and planning resources emphasizing the new interagency Federal guide for developing high-quality emergency operations plans for institutions of higher education, homeland security resources and initiatives that support IHE emergency management, and ED’s technical assistance centers’ resources and trainings that support IHE emergency management and planning;
  • The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Emergency Management Institute trainings and the use of NIMS for IHEs;
  • U.S. General Services Administration’s Cooperative Purchasing Program, State and Local Programs, training, and tools;
  • U.S. Department of Justice's campus public safety and IHE emergency management resources, training, and information; and
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' psychological first aid for IHEs following a traumatic event.

This 1 hour and 8-minute webinar included a live PowerPoint presentation, as well as a Question and Answer session following the presentation.

He has extensive special project experience and is currently responsible for developing training and technical assistance for school based law enforcement nationwide. His co-presenter was Vickie Weaver, who began her career with Rider University as a Senior Officer and was promoted to Director in 1993. She is responsible for the public safety of two campuses, coordinates the University's emergency preparedness and response, serves on several University committees, to include the Student Affairs Leadership Team and Rider University Veterans Association, and has also served as an adjunct instructor.

This webinar provided participants with an overview of the types of campus public safety services that are most common to Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), and how campus public safety officials should be intricately involved in the creation of the IHE Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). By describing the critical responsibilities before, during, and after an emergency, participants will learn how to develop and implement a high-quality EOP and how the IHE EOP planning team can work with their campus public safety agency effectively.
