School safety services:
Ken Trump and his team have 25 years of national and international experience:
Creating "peace of mind" for school superintendents, school boards, principals, and their community partners on school safety and crisis preparedness issues
Helping school administrators get control of school safety and emergency preparedness planning in their schools and school-community
Making school boards and administrators heroes with their parents, community, and media on school safety and preparedness issues
We also specialize in advising and supporting school boards and administrators on school safety issues during highly emotional and/or political circumstances.
We accomplish this through our School Safety and Communication Services:
School security assessments: Practical and cost-effective recommendations for security and crisis preparedness planning, violence prevention, physical security (access control, communications, perimeter security, after hours safety, physical design, etc.), school safety training, security staff and police operations, linking security with prevention and intervention, school-community collaboration, and support service roles in school safety.
School emergency planning evaluations and consultation services to help school leaders evaluate school emergency and crisis plans, district and building school crisis teams, school safety drills and exercises, school training on emergency and crisis plans, school crisis communications, and related school emergency planning components.
Media and parent communication training designed for schools: We teach communication strategies, messaging techniques and on camera training to help you effectively reach parents, children, and community decision makers. We help school leaders communicate school safety and crisis issues to parents, media, and their community.
Facilitated school emergency/crisis tabletop exercises for building and district crisis teams, and their community agency partners to help schools learn whether their written school emergency / crisis plans might work in a real emergency.
Proactive school security and emergency preparedness training helps schools improve emergency management and emergency response capacity, lockdown and evacuation procedures, crisis media and communications, best practices in security and school crime prevention, national trends in school deaths and violence, managing and assessing student threats, school safety assessment processes, and other current hot topics.
