School Based Threat, Risk, and Vulnerability Assessment

“We have no greater duty than to ensure that our children are safe and secure in their schools.”

School Based Threat, Risk, and Vulnerability Assessment (SBTRVA)

The attacks at Columbine High School, Virginia Tech and the recent attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT have strengthened the resolve of communities across our country to complete assessments of schools, colleges and universities, and develop plans to safeguard our children from attacks at their schools.

SBTRVA Methodology

The SBTRVA evaluates the school community’s strengths and weaknesses; identifies the school system’s critical infrastructure and key resources; evaluates the school system and community’s Propane Tank w Pick Upemergency responders capability to prevent, protect, prepare for, respond to, and recover from an attack; evaluates the threats to the school from an all hazard perspective, evaluates the risk to each school in the system as well as the associated Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CI/KR); and provides a comprehensive vulnerability assessment for the individual Schools and related infrastructure.

Application to Operations

The information gathered in the SBTRVA methodology converts easily to school safety and security operations; emergency planning, tactical considerations; prevention activities; protection activities; incident response and command; recovery; and the selection of applicable security technology.
