Emergency Management

The best crisis management is less a product—that is, a plan on paper—than it is a process; a continuous activity requiring coordination and collaboration among a variety of community partners including school personnel, first responders and parents. This process typically requires four steps: Prevention/mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.

Center for Safe Schools Emergency Response Crisis Management (ERCM) Initiative guides schools and districts through this 4-step process of prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery; and provides them with needed research, training and consultation. For Emergency Response Training and Technical Assistance, contact Center for Safe Schools at (717) 763-1661 or
