Seminar Offers Help In Planning For Emergencies

The Philadelphia Inquirer (4/16, Schaefer) reports, "About 450 officials from schools, universities, and law enforcement agencies attended the one-day seminar in Upper Darby, hosted by the Delaware County District Attorney's Office, to discuss preventing and preparing for crises." While there, "educators learned that it would be about 10 minutes before any police arrived and that what they needed most in those first few critical minutes was a plan - and backup plans." One expert "advised watching for signs that include evidence of feelings of isolation...increased absenteeism; fascination with previous attacks; destruction of property; physical changes."
