Notification and Activation (Internal and External Communications)

Internal: Should an incident that will affect our security posture begin within District buildings or grounds, the Superintendent, or direct representative, will be contacted by the On- Site Incident Commander, normally a building Principal, and apprised of the situation. The District Superintendent, will then contact appropriate district personnel in order to initiate District level response and support services to the emergency.

 

External: Should the information that will affect our security posture be received from an outside source, such as the BOCES DS or local authorities, the Superintendent will direct Administrators to set appropriate security conditions within appropriate buildings for the protection of staff, students, and visitors. Although it is recognized that the actual event will dictate who will be able to notify appropriate outside authorities, such as fire, police, etc., the Incident Commander will normally be the only authorized person to contact outside agencies.
