We’re pleased to announce a newly confirmed seminar for the Education Facilities Forum/Healthcare and Education Security Forum/Healthcare Facilities Forum.
“Planning for a Campus Emergency” workshop is to be presented by Patrick V. Fiel on October 28th & 29th
at The Hyatt Regency in Austin, Texas.
Patrick V. Fiel, Sr. has over thirty years of experience managing security and law enforcement organizations, and is a nationally recognized expert in campus security for both K-12 and higher education clients.
The senseless attack at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School showed again how it takes tragic events such as this for school administrators, public officials and the general public to focus on campus security. We’ve seen it before with tragic events that seared the names of other campuses into our minds — Columbine, West Nickel Mines Amish School, and Virginia Tech. Patrick will be discussing ways to help you protect your campuses. The main ingredients to an emergency plan are prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.
The combination of well-planned security procedures, risk assessments, crisis preparedness planning, security technology, and training can help to reduce incidents on and around campuses.
