Possible Intrusion at Holy Family Catholic School
Step 1:
prepare tools
Step 2:
My plan is for Holy Family Catholic School. HFCS is a private, Catholic school with approximately 240 students ranging from grades Pre-K through 8th grade. There are also 25 staff members.
Step 3:
THIRA Risk Process:
1. Identify the Threats and Hazards of Concern
a. Human-caused incidents: Intruders
i. Criminals
ii. Parents
iii. Staff
iv. General outsiders
2. Give the Threats and hazards Context
a. Intruders are any individual unwelcome in the building. Intruders are a major concern in the education system. They may come in the form of a visible criminal; someone unrelated to the school, as well as a parent or staff member with ill-will towards someone or something within the school.
b. An intruder may attempt to enter or attack the building at any time during the day, however an attack during school hours, specifically recess would have the greatest impact.
c. If the intruder entered the building during recess, it would be the hardest to keep the children safe as they are all outside and cannot be confined.
d. The number of staff on recess duty would have a large impact on how the incident can be managed.
3. Establish Capability Targets
a. If there was an intruder during recess hours, the staff needs a plan to keep the children safe and out of harm’s way.
i. Each adult on recess duty must know which children they are responsible for in the case of an attack.
ii. The adult must also know the plan of action, or place to take the children, if there was an attack.
iii. The children should also be aware of who and where they need to be if an attack were to occur.
b. Gathering children should occur within a matter of minutes. Adults on recess duty should be able to transport students to designated safe location within minutes of possible threat.
4. Apply the Results
a. For this plan to work out, numerous close locations for children are needed. Enough adults on staff are also needed to assure no child is left behind.
Step 4:
