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


Since the December 2012 school shooting in Newtown, CT, there have been more than 74 school shootings in America. Nearly every day our nation’s children are exposed to school violence.  The goal of the SECURE SCHOOL PROJECT is to ensure that every child is safe and secure in their schools. YOU are the key to the success of this project! Your tax deductible donation will help us to provide our vital School Based Threat, Risk, & Vulnerability Assessment (SBTRVA) training program to school systems in all 50 States throughout 2015.

The training provides school administration, faculty and staff along with emergency responders, the ability to evaluate threats to their schools, identify risks, and ensure that they know where their schools are vulnerable. This knowledge will help them put plans and procedures in place to KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE.

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 emergency 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.
Funding 
The Coalition seeks donations from corporations, foundations and individuals to help the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition to provide School Based Threat, Risk, and Vulnerability Assessments to School Districts in all 50 States over 2015.
