Securing Our Students Program Announced: New program will assist first responders in the event of a school emergency


This afternoon, the Cleveland Division of Police and the Cleveland Municipal School District announced the implementation of the Securing Our Students (SOS) Program. This program will greatly assist first responders in the event of a school emergency. The City of Cleveland has partnered with Foremost Safety Solutions, Inc. in order to create a comprehensive blueprint system of 100 schools within the Cleveland Municipal School District. The use of the blueprint navigational system helps to facilitate a standard approach to emergency situations.
The blueprint navigational system will be available to dispatchers who can provide first responders with precise directions and locations in the event of an emergency. In addition, emergency service personnel will have access to the plans via mobile data terminals, which will allow for additional planning while enroute to an emergency.
