School Crisis Training 

Schools have their own crisis plan, however, the challenge is having enough trained staff to meet the need when there is a sudden loss. This training is designed for private and public schools who intend on developing a team within your district, or in combination with other schools or districts. This training is also in partnership with ESC of Northeast Ohio.
