    Global information system (GIS) mapping services

    Unique capability that enables analysis of perimeters and facilities

    Organize information into visuals and interactive Apps for information retrieval and use during a school emergency response. This information can be incorporated as a component of your Emergency Operations Plan, and the data can also be shared with emergency responders for inclusion in their response plans to a school.

    Many states mandate this information is supplied to emergency response agencies as GIS is now a recommended best practice.

    Training programs and facilitation

    Development and implementation of training programs that are tailored to the specific needs of each client.

    Trainings are designed to address the level of responsibility staff members have during an emergency response in order to optimize available time and funding. All of our training programs rely heavily on the concept of participant involvement in tabletop exercise and hands-on drills. This experiential learning helps attendees understand the anchor points presented in the lecture and develop the “muscle memory” that allows emergency response to become second nature during a stressful critical incident. SSO is aware of time and budgetary restrictions faced by schools and school districts, so training blocks are designed around availability of both.

    These training blocks are designed specifically for schools, and is required for compliance with Homeland Presidential Security Directive 5 (HSPD5), which went into effect July 1, 2005.

D4 Training

Given the increasing number of workplace violence incidents and tragedies taking place during religious services, School Safety Operations established D4 Training to provide specialized readiness training programs to help leaders in places of worship and private businesses prepare for threats and emergencies beyond fire drills. We draw from the Detect-Deter-Delay-Defeat concept to help leaders identify weak points within their establishment and preparedness exercises supported by research statistics that provide context for trends to watch.
