As governed by Michigan Public Act 12 of 2014, the District has developed a comprehensive safety plan partnering with the Macomb Intermediate School District Emergency Management Division, the Michigan State Police and local law enforcement. These plans are biennially reviewed and updated as necessary with the main goal being the safety and security of all Warren Consolidated School students, staff, and properties. Each school conducts a minimum of five (5) fire drills every school year. Each school also conducts a minimum of two (2) tornado safety drills. Warren Consolidated schools has adopted the A.L.I.C.E. method of response to a critical incident. The District conducts a minimum of three (3) active event drills at each school and facility. The District’s Emergency Preparedness plan along with annual training provides our students, staff and community with the confidence and knowledge to react to a threatening incident.
BIENNIAL SCHOOL SECURITY SURVEY
In 2018, the State of Michigan passed a new law, MCL 380.1308 b (1), which requires the District to conduct a biennial review of the vulnerability assessment described in our Emergency Operations Plan. The District uses the “K-12 School Security Survey” developed and published by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. This information is used to assist the District with maintaining a safe and secure environment.
PARENT GUIDE FOR STUDENT REUNIFICATION
The Warren Consolidated School District, in conjunction with the local emergency responders have developed plans to protect students in the event that an emergency or disaster occurs. The plan includes safely reuniting students with their families. The success of the plan depends on your cooperation. The plan includes policy and procedure for lockdowns, fire drills, disaster drills, evacuations, which are practiced several times per year, and student reunification.
It is vitally important that you have completely filled out an Emergency Contact for the school. Make sure you have a minimum of two (2) other individuals listed on the emergency contact with valid contact numbers authorized to pick-up your child in the event a parent/guardian is not available. Be sure to share this plan with those individuals listed on the emergency card.
