Campbell Co. EMA hosts crisis management workshop

ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19) - The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management hosted a Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents: Partnering Law Enforcement and the Local School Systems workshop on Wednesday.

The training will be held again on Thursday at the Campbell County Fire Training Center.

The workshop is an eight-hour course designed to educate law enforcement personnel and school administrators and staff on the elements that would allow for an effected response to school-based emergencies.

Through the course, rural law enforcement officials receive information and training tools that may be used when working with their local school systems. As a result of the training, law enforcement, superintendents, principals, school resource officers and others will be better prepared to work collaboratively when a crisis occurs.
