Reminder: School Security Plans
Public Act 13-3, An Act Concerning Gun Violence Prevention and Children's Safety states, "For the school year commencing July 1, 2014, and each school year thereafter, each local and regional board of education shall develop and implement a school security and safety plan for each school under the jurisdiction of such board."
CIRMA reminds its members that their plan should be sent electronically or on disc to the appropriate DEMHS Regional Office, as well as provided in similar format to each First Responder agency for the town (the agencies, the positions that sign the plan, as listed at the beginning of the plan template), including law enforcement (local Police Department or resident trooper).
The plan should follow the All-Hazards School Security and Safety Plan Template that is provided by the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.
