Event Description


New York State’s school officials and staff do countless things every day to keep students and staff safe. This three-hour training focuses on an in-depth review of New York State’s Project SAVE legislation regarding District-Wide Safety Plans and Building-Level Emergency Response Plans, and how school officials can use the planning principles and planning process recommended in the federal Guide for Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans, to meet New York’s statutory and regulatory requirements. Participants will receive guidance in how to apply a 6-Step Planning Process to develop plans which will allow your school or district to address the 5 Preparedness Missions of Prevention, Mitigation, Protection, Response, and Recovery.

Target Audience:

Chief Emergency Officers (CEOs) of Boards of Cooperative Education Services (BOCES), public school districts and charter schools; district and school building administrators; other school district, school or BOCES personnel who are members of the school or district safety planning team and are involved in planning and the annual development, review, and revision of District-Wide Safety Plans and Building-Level Emergency Response Plans.
