Do you know the plan?

Standard Response Protocol

During an emergency, having a simple game plan in which everyone knows his or her role, is key.

The premise of Standard Response Protocol (SRP) is simple-there are four specific actions that can be performed during an incident, as shown below.

Lockout
Lockout is followed by the Directive: "Secure the Perimeter" and is the protocol used to safeguard students and staff within the building. 

Lockdown

Lockdown is followed by "Locks, Lights, Out of Sight" and is the protocol used to secure individual rooms and keep students quiet and in place.
Evacuate
Evacuate is always followed by a location, and is used to move students and staff from one location to a different location in or out of the building.
ShelterShelter is always followed by a type and a method and is the protocol for group and self-protection.
