NCS4 Director Lou Marciani addresses the attendees at the Rick Management Pilot Program.

Risk management training program a success


Representatives from seven different school districts converged on the CIAC offices April 22 and 23 to take part in the Risk Management Training and Assessment Pilot Program provided by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security. Connecticut was the second of three states to offer this pilot training program intended to help school districts address the risk management concerns associated with interscholastic and after-school activities.

With school representatives including superintendents, principals, athletics directors and school resource officers in attendance the training program detailed policies and procedures schools could put in place to help prevent and respond to incidents in after school programs.

The in-depth training program led by retired FBI instructor David Corderman and Jeff Stonebreaker a Lieutenant with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando, Florida, consisted of seven modules in which the attendees worked through various components of risk management. As an in-progress pilot program the attendees also provided feedback on the training while gaining the valuable insight provided by the experts. The program included group discussion and extensive information in areas such as identifying and prioritizing risk, organizational teamwork, risk assessment and planning, training and exercise, and implementation. Gwen Hess of the Department of Homeland Security was also in attendance for the first day of the program.

The pilot programs, with the support of Assa Abloy, are taking place in three states with Connecticut and Mississippi having already hosted programs and Indiana serving as the third site in the coming weeks. There is hope the training will be widely available in the future to provide the valuable training and information to as many school districts as possible.
