This site is developed with the support of a grant provided by the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS). How long your school or classroom will be on lockdown depends on the situation so you should prepare for several hours.
If your school is struck by a natural disaster it may be up to individual teachers to help their students survive the aftermath.
From elementary schools to universities millions of students will be spending hours of their days on campus and if you are a teacher, administrator or principal it is important to be prepared for emergency situations.
Columbine and Sandy Hook are just two well documented incidents in which gunmen entered a school and randomly shot students and teachers. The culture and atmosphere at my school were much different from the public schools where I taught for 30 years. Catholic schools are similar to public schools in that both are challenged by funding issues. It is important to balance costs of security measures with the likelihood of an event putting a school at risk.
Joffe Emergency Services is the leading provider of school emergency planning - including response training and disaster preparedness - for schools throughout the country. Full-Scale Post-Disaster Response DrillsIn response to an overwhelming need for increased scrutiny surrounding emergency response training on campus, Joffe has developed a one-of-a-kind Moulage Drill catered to the unique needs of public and private schools. School Safety FundraisersEmergency planning is a necessity, not a luxury – an earthquake, fire, flood, or lockout will occur, and it is your responsibility to protect the lives entrusted to you by stocking up on emergency food, water, and first aid for 72 hour survival.

Copyright  Joffe Emergency Services Built with VolusionJoffe Emergency Services offers Response Training, CPR Classes, First Aid Training, and BLS Training in our Santa Monica, CA training facility and through online courses. While I am not an alarmist, there is much that goes into making a school a safe and secure environment for all. Don’t start your school year without having the proper emergency gear that will keep you and your students safe. Based on my own experience, Catholic schools are at less of a risk from the typical act of school violence because of the positive relationships between the students and staff and the amount of parental involvement with the school. Superintendents, school boards, administrators, and teachers trust Joffe's certified experts to save lives and prevent emergencies through expert service that builds trust, demonstrates respect, and empowers schools to apply life-saving techniques to any individual in need, under any circumstance.
Trusted by top-tier independent schools, Joffe’s Moulage Drill is an interactive event designed to establish a hands-on understanding of emergency response for students and teachers alike. Yet for many schools and school administrators, emergency supplies are treated as a luxury due to harsh fiscal realities.
There is a name for facilities that implement the strictest practices and protocols to keep everyone inside the facility safe from outside harm and to make the facility a hard target: prisons. Natural disasters and terrorist attacks do not exclude schools and for the safety of your students it is imperative that you have well-stocked disaster and emergency kits on the premise so you can provide first response in the event of an earthquake, tornado or other catastrophe.
Onsite training is provided at no extra cost for groups and can be broken up over a period of days to accommodate your staff’s busy schedule.
In order to ensure full disaster protection, our licensed experts will work directly with your school or district’s key stakeholders to create, update, or certify your disaster response plan, including: notification systems, communications plans, evacuation procedures, chain of command, post-incident response, parental response, materials supply and materials maintenance.

Joffe’s Moulage Drill brings your school’s current response plan to life through a carefully constructed, real-time reenactment of disaster response staffed with nationally recognized paramedics and supervised by trained disaster response specialists at a price you can afford. That’s why we’ve designed a comprehensive safety fundraiser in order to lift the financial burden on your school.
During such events schools are often put on lockdown while police and rescue teams act to apprehend the shooters and tend to victims. There are eight siblings in my family and all of us attended Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Grove City, OH.
Joffe will not only work with your staff to find the best AED for your campus, we’ll deliver a comprehensive placement, training, and tracking package at no additional charge. In his retirement he started his own risk management company and continues to work with schools, colleges, and faith-based organizations around the country. He is a nationally recognized expert in school safety and continues to present at conferences throughout the U.S.
