Keeping Kids Safe symposiums have been coordinated by the Berks County Intermediate Unit since 2010. BCIU brings in experts on school safety and security to Berks County. These symposiums are an opportunity for school administrators, counselors, psychologist, nurses, SAP, emergency response personnel, and community partners to hear from the leaders in the field.
The upcoming Keeping Kids Safe Symposium on Wednesday, October 4, 2023 will feature the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) and the Standard Reunification Method (SRM) from the I Love U Guys Foundation. The Standard Response Protocol (SRP) provides consistent, clear, shared language and actions among all students, staff and first responders for all hazards. It is action based, and allows first responders, students, and parents to share a specific vocabulary for quick and coordinated action.
The Standard Reunification Method (SRM) was introduced in 2012, to fill a critical void in school safety planning: How to reunite students with their parents after a crisis. Also included in the training is a segment on Incident Command and how it relates to crisis management for educators.
Community partners, including elected officials, mental health professionals, and first responders are also invited to attend.
This is a FREE seminar. Educators may earn 3 Act 48 hours.
