Canton, CT (PRWEB) February 23, 2010
AmericanSchoolSafety.com, LLC, a leader in the development and delivery of school safety products and services, today announced the issuance of U.S. Patent # 7,628,275 for its Crisis Response Kit® (CRK), the first and only kit of its kind designed for use by schools, higher education, institutions, businesses, hospitals, day and elder care facilities in emergency and crisis situations.
The CRK provides specific guidelines in planning for, training and practicing adopted protocols and procedures to address site based emergencies. Providing a simplified yet broad-based application that can be used at any building or facility to effectively plan, prepare, and respond to emergencies, the CRK is easily adaptable for workplace installation, and compliments OSHA, NFPA and Department of Homeland Security standards.
The patent recognizes both the emergency preparation methodologies as well as the comprehensive crisis resource kit designed specifically for use in emergency situations. More particularly, the CRK provides administrators, teachers, and personnel with the procedures, tools, communication devices, crucial contact information, and critical logistical data required to successfully respond to a host of emergency situations until such time that first responders can assume control.
“There is a need to cluster topics into natural disasters, human caused disasters, evacuation procedures, medical protocols, etc., and to organize critical documents so that their presentation is user-friendly before, during and after a crisis or emergency,” said Dr. Victor H. Ferry, a noted school safety and emergency planning expert. “The CRK provides a ready-made safety/crisis preparation kit; a prevention and response plan based on active, successful models; and a template for customizing a comprehensive school safety, security and emergency response program in cooperation with local and state officials.”
The Educational Sector CRK is currently licensed for sale by American School Safety.com for use in educational facilities within the United States, including but not limited to, pre-school, K-12, tribal nation schools, colleges and universities, and vocational technical schools.
