COMPANY PROFILE
SafePlans

Protecting our schools can be incredibly complicated and tragically imperfect. SafePlans understands safe and prepared schools are a consequence of collaborative efforts among schools leaders and their commentary stakeholders, all other concerns – including our mandate to educate and prepare our children – are secondary. Recent events, including an increasing number of violent school intruder situations that have resulted in multiple deaths, have made it essential that every school district receives emergency training and has a comprehensive preparedness program.

Today, emergency planners are tasked with developing comprehensive plans that fall well outside their areas of expertise. SafePlans provides our nation’s schools with the training, resources, and infrastructure they need to implement and maintain the most comprehensive and intuitive emergency response plans possible.

It’s not enough to think your schools are safe. You have to know they’re safe.

SafePlans has worked with clients at all levels of government and industry. We work hand in hand with our clients to develop emergency preparedness programs that are highly effective and highly sustainable.

SafePlans believes the four phases of emergency management (Prevention/Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery) are the foundations on which emergency plans are built. All four phases are interconnected and interdependent and each directly impacts the overall plan.

Having reviewed thousands of plans, it has been SafePlans’ experience that many emergency plans were prepared prior to the federal mandate of the National Response Framework (NRF Plan), mandatory compliance with NIMS, and integration with ICS. Many plans include the basic framework for operational needs and require minimal revisions, not a complete re-writing of the plan.

SafePlans has the experience and technology needed to implement statewide and local educational preparedness programs. SafePlans’ pioneered statewide emergency planning efforts for schools and our ERIP software is a Homeland Security Safety Act designated platform that provides all schools a sustainable state-of-art preparedness program.

Our plans are comprehensive and include:

  • Emergency Plans (online, print and mobile app)
  • Security Assessments
  • Tactical Site Mapping
  • Online Training / Learning Management System
  • Compliance tracking features
  • Readiness status boards
  • Resource libraries
