Emergency Planning for Schools

Our team breaks down the government requirements and provides creative solutions to ensure mitigation factors are put in place that don't go dormant due to fatigue, the "it will never happen here" mentality, or simple human error.

Schools are required to have an All-Hazards Emergency Response Plan as well as a Health and Safety Plan for every building on campus.

Family Assistance Center & Reunification

When major incidents or disasters happen, loved ones can get separated from each other. Unfortunately, when fatalities occur, positive identifications need to be made so that families can be notified and reunited with their loved ones to start the process of honoring, healing, and recovery.

Family assistance and reunification centers follow a standardized process under the National Incident Management System (NIMS) to ensure that this process runs smoothly and efficiently, minimizes error, and provides optimum liability protection under local, regional, state, and federal emergency declarations. Optima EP provides didactic training as well as exercises to ensure your agency or jurisdiction understands the functions of this important emergency response resource.
