Traditionally, discrepancies in technology, preparation, coordination between agencies, and school policies and procedures could slow down a notification to emergency responders. Even with all the advances in interoperable communications in public safety, schools’ typical main form of communication in an emergency is a 9-1-1 call. In this webinar, what is and is not true interoperability, the importance of incident command for school leadership, and examples of tools to help guide schools and districts’ learning to improve their response will be discussed. Key takeaways include the understanding of the relationship between public safety and schools and the impact that relationship has on the community, how to help improve communications between the two to provide a faster, more effective response, and how to integrate interoperability in your area.
