Are you one of the key employees eligible for the special safety training sessions outlined in the online memo published Aug. 25? If so, make plans now to sign up via eTRAIN.

Starting Sept. 16, the HISD Risk Management, Police, and Psychological Services departments will be hosting twice-monthly training sessions on the following safety topics, which were chosen especially by the Threat Assessment Committee:

  • Fire Safety—including emergency evacuation plans, fire extinguisher training, and common fire code violations in schools
  • Emergency Management 101—including lockdown, shelter-in-place, bomb threat, and suspicious package procedures
  • Intruder-ology: Run, Hide, or Fight
  • Crime Prevention and Mental Health Awareness

The consolidated, four-hour sessions will take place once per month through May 2015 at each location: the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th St., 77092) and the McCarty Complex (228 McCarty, 77029).

The initial recommended target audience includes key central office and campus administrators, but will eventually include all employees. Course descriptions, scheduling dates, times and registration details are available through e-TRAIN (course code RM00040).
