The American School Safety CRISIS RESPONSE KIT®
U.S. PATENT #7,628,275
We have developed a customized solution to address these issues and to empower educators and youth-serving professionals to successfully respond and react to emergency situations.
he CRISIS RESPONSE KIT (CRK) is a customized, patented, portable and accessible emergency kit, designed for use during building emergencies, critical incidents, or for training and practice of situational response drills.
The CRK is intended be placed throughout each facility in key locations such as: Main Office, Guidance Department, Chemistry/Science/Laboratories, Athletic Department, Maintenance Department and individual classrooms.
A duplicate copy of the Crisis Response Kit should also be kept off-site; preferably at the Superintendent's Office, Police Department, Fire Department, or Town Office of Emergency Management.
The CRK fills a crucial void in basic educator certification training, while facilitating collaboration between personnel who otherwise rarely meet to plan policies, procedures and guidelines for crisis response. Further, it provides a myriad of resource personnel to bolster areas where local first responders may lack expertise, e.g., essential hardware, legal implications, Gestalt security thinking, etc. And for those who worry about the cost of implementing such a comprehensive program, each kit costs less than $1 per child in most schools.
There is a need to cluster topics into: natural disasters, human caused disasters, evacuation stages, medical matters, etc., and to organize the documents so that their presentation is user-friendly before, during and after a crisis or emergency.”
