Safe Schools Software
Safety, Security & Multi-Hazard Incident Management Softwar
e by CADAFIS
 

 Safe Schools Software (SSS) is used by School Districts to improve their Safety & Security Plan, Emergency Response Plan or Multi-Hazard Incident Management Plan by adapting it to a multi-site electronic Plan for use by District and Local School Buildings.
 SSS consists of six sections as shown below. Each section contains forms that provide for effective organization of your Plan data. All sections are independent of the others and may be purchased singly, as an entire set or in any combination. SSS is integrated with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) protocols.
 Data, forms and templates of your Plan are downloaded into the related forms of the SSS sections. With the increased facility to electronically communicate audits & measures, evaluations and reports, SSS provides schools with a systematic improvement process by which to strengthen and continuously improve their Plan.
SSS Section Titles:
      Incident Command- IC
      Crisis Incident Management- CIM
      Incident Management Capabilities Audit & Measures- IMCAM
      Site, Vicinity & Facilities Audit and Measures- SVFAM
      Crisis Early Warning Signs and Incident Tracking- CEWSIT
      Safety, Security, Health Incident Management- SSHIM
This section uses the NIMS concepts of incident management and provides a flexible framework for districts, local schools, public, police, fire, emergency medical and governmental entities to work together in all phases of incident management. The section consists of three organizational groups: Incident Command, Multi-agency Coordination with Assistance Agreements/Memos of Understanding and Public Information System.
This section is organized around multi-hazard crisis incidents. Typically there are 30 crisis incidents that must be managed. Each incident has its own set of planning, training, drills/exercising and evaluation, resources deployment of equipment/supplies/personnel, communications, preparedness, response, recovery and prevention components, each with its own set of procedures. A set of procedures for only one incident and its components generates large amounts of data. Such data is organized so that it is easily acquired, exchanged and reported with SSS at both the Plan development and Plan management stages.
This section is a self-administered audit tool used to identify incident command and incident management capabilities of local entities. The audit also identifies standards, which local schools and district entities must be in compliance with. The school district evaluates each "Audit Report" and returns a "Measures Report" to the local school-building. Each "Measures Report" includes a ranking, a description and the priority of the measures that must be taken to comply with the district standards. The audit may serve as an annual report.
This section assists local schools to audit the condition and arrangement of building facilities, site, vicinity and equipment systems that may impact the security and safety of the facilities and the occupants. Threats against persons and property assets are tracked. Vulnerabilities are analyzed and reported, which assists decision makers with resource allocations. Reports are produced automatically and include: observations and deficiencies of audited items and priority ranking of required improvement measures. Support is provided to the business office for cost estimates of needed systems integration and capital improvements. Financial analysis may be made of the life cycle costs of proposed capital expenditures before the expense is committed.
This section involves incidents or occasions that impact the safety, security and health of the school's learning environment that are not crisis incidents. Districts have had such incident management policies, laws, and procedures in place for years. This section strengthens the district's current safety, security and health incident management. These incidents are integral to crisis incidents. Effective management of these incidents serves to proactively mitigate and prevent more serious incidents.

This section manages crisis incident prevention and mitigation procedures based upon research-based practices such as Student Assistance Programs. The section assists school administrators, staff, students, parents and community members to recognize and track crisis warning signs early so that students can get the help they need before it is too late. Although most schools are safe, violence that occurs in neighborhoods has found its way into the schools. The application of research based violence mitigation and prevention procedures not only make schools safer but also improve the learning climate.
The Options button provides access to Configuration, Images and Reports, which are included with all of the sections. Configuration is used to customize, change, delete and add data to the menus of all the sections. Images may be accessed consisting of photos and the graphic plans of the Vicinity, Site, and Buildings where locations of related data may be recorded on the graphic images. Reports present a schedule of reports, associated with each particular section, which may be previewed and automatically printed.
