While law makers are trying to decide what they can do to help make students safe, Rapides Parish Schools are taking steps to improve their preparedness efforts and strengthen their security in all schools. The school board decided to partenr with SafePlans to help make their schools even safer and more prepared.
“Any type of emergency plan should be a working document, and you should probably review it on a quarterly basis minimally” says, coordinator of risk management, Roy Rachel.
Roy states, “If you look at the plan (with SafePlans) it’s very comprehensive, it includes a software package (ERIP) for emergency reporting and training”. Roy goes on to explain SafePlans ERIPs system- “site mapping will actually give that information to who ever is on the security matrix, like law enforcement.”
Board member Steve Chapman is pleased to have a fresh set of eyes on the matter. Rapides Parish joins Bossier, Caddo, East Baton Rouge, Livingston parishes and Zachary County Schools as Louisana school systems that are prepared with SafePlans.
