Recovery and Reunification: Ensuring Care and Safety Post-Incident

Hank Morten, Director Safety, Security & Emergency Preparedness, TRiGroup Inc

This GroupProject will provide an overview of the reunification process, from pre-incident planning stages to post-incident consequence management. Together, we will discuss how to control chaos in an anxiety filled situation, with proven methods that require planning and realistic training.

This process ensures that everyone involved receives immediate care, counseling and follow-up information for long term mental health and support services. All students are safely and efficiently reunited with their guardians to ensure full accountability, thus dramatically reducing liability to the school district. The reunification process gives the school district and law enforcement the ability to safely control large or small numbers of students, guardians and media at a secure site.

The program Hank is sharing is based on over twenty-three years of experience managing critical incidents and training exercises within the San Francisco Sheriff’s Dept., Alameda Police Dept., and others. It has had a direct impact in overall safety, security, preparedness and consequence management.

The session is designed for all levels, is will include interactive exercises. This session will allow people to build upon each other’s expertise and strengthen relationships among team members.

Bring your questions, express your concerns, share your experience, and take time to connect with your peers during these small, one-hour GroupProject sessions!
