The Institute for Childhood Preparedness is excited to announce our new partnership with Academy Primary School in Rockville, Maryland. We're looking forward to hosting our first set of safety events on Saturday, November 9, 2019. The Active Shooter Preparedness Training is from 9 am-1 pm, and the Fire Safety and Prevention Training is from 2 pm-4 pm.
We're looking forward to providing more opportunities for early childhood professionals in the future through this partnership. We will be scheduling more events soon - including sessions in Spanish!
Active Shooter Preparedness Training for Early Childhood Professionals
Join us for an Active Shooter Preparedness Training for early childhood professionals. This training is designed specifically for child care providers and those responsible for infants, toddlers, and young children. The training, grounded in lessons from prior mass shootings, will give child care teams tactical methods, hands-on exercises, and strategies for responding to an active shooter incident. Participants will also receive tools to develop an individualized active shooter emergency plan. MSDE hours/credit will be given to those who attend.
Active Shooter Training Workshops with The Institute for Childhood Preparedness
During an active shooter training workshop, participants will learn evidence-based techniques and strategies on how best to prepare for and respond to an active shooter incident. The course will also provide information on how best to conduct drills, develop a customized plan, and work together to ensure staff, teachers, and children are best prepared.
The course will also feature a hands-on portion, where the tools and techniques discussed in the class will be put to use. Our active shooter training courses are specifically designed to prepare, not scare - no live or simulated ammunition will be used in this training. Practical and hands-on exercises are conducted in a calm environment, designed to ensure that all participants learn and can practice these vital techniques.
Fire Safety and Prevention Training for Early Childhood Professionals
Did you know that there are around 560 fires in early childhood programs each year? Be prepared and join us for this 2-hour course. Participants will learn about fire safety and prevention and get to put out an actual fire with a fire extinguisher. Please wear closed-toe shoes.
