4 4 INTRODUCTION At Hillcrest School District, we strive to maintain a safe and stable educational environment through focusing on prevention of avoidable emergencies. However, we recognize that some crises are inevitable, and we must be prepared. In the event of such an emergency situation, each school in our state must have a crisis management plan. An emergency can come in the form of a natural disaster, such as tornado, earthquake, or flood, or in the form of man-made disasters such as chemical accident, fire, explosion, bomb threat, or weapon on campus. This plan delineates Hillcrest School District s plan for management and operations in various emergency situations. This plan has been formulated to aid Hillcrest School District leaders in directing our staff and students to safety in an emergency situation. The mission of the Hillcrest School District crisis management plan is to furnish the maximum practical protection for our students and staff in a crisis situation. To meet this mission, we will give instruction and preparedness training to our staff and students in the necessary and safe processes to implement in the event of a crisis on campus. This will be achieved through staff in-service trainings and student drills. The event of a crisis will necessitate an immediate response from all staff as they implement their particular procedure from the plan. As no two emergencies are the same in nature, scope, or magnitude, it is essential that the plan be basic, flexible, and subject to adjustment as needed. Adjustments to the plan will be made according to the judgment of the Superintendent or Civil Authorities. Our top priorities in the event of emergency situation will be: 1. Protection of life. 2. Prevention of injuries. 3. Protection of property. 4. Coordination with local civil authorities. 5. Aid in recovery operations.
5 5 INITIAL RESPONSE IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION The first responses in a declared emergency are going to be one or more of the following tasks: A Room Evacuation may be the result of a fire, earthquake, or any other event which requires leaving a building. If an earthquake occurs, the room evacuation will be preceded by the duck, cover, and hold procedure. A Campus Evacuation will occur if the campus is deemed unsafe and uninhabitable by civil authority or by administration. This will usually be the result of an earthquake, extensive campus fire, range fire, aircraft disaster, chemical threat, or local police action. A Lock Down procedure will occur if a threat occurs on campus or in the local neighborhood which requires students to be taken indoors where it is less likely that they will be injured. This will usually be the result of an attack by an armed person on campus or gun shots fired on campus (or in the nearby neighborhood). COMMUNICATION DURING AN EMERGENCY The school alarm system will be utilized to notify every one of room evacuations and lock downs. Campus evacuations will be initiated by verbal commands from principals on the field after a room evacuation has occurred. All other commands will be delivered verbally by administration. Emergency Task Room Evacuation Campus Evacuation Alarm (Notification) Long, steady buzzer Verbal by administration via phone Lock Down Repeated short bursts of buzzer The All Clear alarm for all drills will be given verbally from the command post by phone.

We will use the plan as written and train all personnel using outside resources such as information from the Red Cross, local civil authorities and government resources such as FEMA. An evaluation will be carried out after each drill to determine the effectiveness of the plan as implemented. If any adjustment needs to be made a new training will be implemented to address those changes. Fine tuning will be carried out until the plan runs smoothly and with integrity. The evaluation will be carried out by the superintendent to ensure integrity of the plan. Evaluation procedures will address timing of response, personnel in the appropriate place at the appropriate time, students in the appropriate places at appropriate times.
