15 Tips for a Crisis Plan Thoroughly debrief after the training exercise. Identify not only successes but shortcomings and unexpected problems that need to be dealt with. Suggested Lockdown Procedures Is there a code to announce a school wide lockdown? Call it LOCKDOWN (Code Red and Code Yellow) Is there procedure for office staff, teachers, administrators, and a custodians to use when a lockdown occurs? Is there a procedure to lock classroom doors, windows, and entrances nces to the school? Is there a procedure for contacting law enforcement agencies for assistance about the threat? Is there a procedure to announce when a situation has been neutralized? Is there a procedure for portable classrooms to have communication on devices to report to the office? Are signs posted for visitors to report to the office when entering the school building? Practice before you need it 15

16 Code Yellow Lockdown May be used in the event of a Bomb Threat, Police K-9 K Search, Escaped Felon in the community, etc. The following steps should be taken: 1. Administrators should lock all exterior doors. 2. Teachers are to close and lock their classroom door. 3. Students are to remain in the classroom at all times during the lockdown. 4. Teachers may open the classroom door in order to allow students or faculty to enter the classroom. 5. During the lockdown, teachers should re-inspect their classroom to determine if anything appears to be out of place. 6. An Administrator will advise teachers when the lockdown has ended. Code Yellow Lockdown Special Considerations Gymnasiums Move students to the center of the gym Account for all students Listen for further instructions Cafeteria Have students remain in cafeteria Maintain silence Listen for further instructions Athletic fields / Playgrounds Bring students to the center of the field Account for all students Listen for further instructions 16

Do not open door until instructed to do so by Police. Turn off electronic devices if possible. Code Red Lockdown 3. Students who happen to be outside of their classroom during a code red lockdown should quickly move to the safest possible area. Students should be aware that teachers are NOT to open classroom doors during a code red lockdown. 4. School personnel should be assigned to check common areas such as restrooms, gyms and cafeterias. 5. The police will advise teachers when the lockdown has ended. 17

18 Code Red Lockdown Special Considerations Gymnasiums Students should be secured in locker rooms. Cafeteria Students should be secured in kitchen area.
