While we have been busy developing and implementing new emergency plans and crisis intervention teams, many of us have overlooked the role of secure facilities when considering safety measures to incorporate into planning of new construction and updating current buildings. This webinar is designed to review some of the strategies we can use to make our current buildings safer and to include in planning for and design of new construction in an effort to focus on prevention instead of response. OBJECTIVES 1. What critical recommendations emerged from the catastrophic events at Virginia Tech and how they can be implemented at their campuses, 2. What they can do to make existing campus facilities safer and more secure during emergencies, and how these provisions can contribute to prevention of violent incidents, 3. How to develop campus facility standards which incorporate specific security measures for new and existing buildings, 4. Resources for conducting facility safety audits, 5. Potential funding sources for safety improvements for their college. WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
