The aim of emergency planning is to ensure that the safety of staff and students if maintained, as far as possible, during an emergency or a disaster. Planning for emergencies provides a sense of predictability to the school community about how it will respond if they occur.


This program is designed to support site leaders in their responsibilities in relation to the management of Critical: prevention, preparation, response and recovery.  For the purpose of this program, Critical, critical event and emergency are used interchangeably.


The Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) program is intended to help individuals exposed to critical incidents to identify and cope with their responses to these events. The focus of CISM is to provide “psychological first aid” and to minimize the harmful affects of job stress, particularly in crisis or emergency situations. Critical Incident Stress Management includes pre-incident training and post-incident services..



  • Critical Incident - Any event with sufficient impact to produce significant emotional reactions now or later. It is generally considered extremely unusual in the range of ordinary human experiences. Examples of critical incidents include the following:
    1. Crew members death in line of duty
    2. Children’s death or serious injury
    3. Multiple fatalities or seriously injured survivors
    4. Suicide, successful or attempted
    5. Natural disasters
    6. Class A or B mishaps involving death or permanent injury and otherwise high emotional impact
    7. Use of deadly force
    8. Grotesque injuries
    9. Acts of terrorism
    10. Acts of violence resulting in injury or death
    11. Observing any traumatic event
  • Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) - A group meeting intended to:
    1. Acknowledge both potential and realized traumatic reactions to the event or incident
    2. Stabilize and mitigate the impact of acute symptoms/signs of distress following the exposure
    3. Assist individuals to evaluate their own responses in terms of the impact on their current occupational functioning and the possible need for ongoing referral/treatment
    4. Encourage the mitigating effects of peer group support and interaction in the workplace
    5. Facilitate participants’ use of social, emotional, and psychological resources available to them

To maximize effectiveness, a debriefing should normally occur 24-72 hours after an event. CISD usually uses all team members. It is not therapy even though a mental health professional is part of the team.

  • Critical Incident Stress Defusing - Small group process, usually no more than 30 minutes, ideally done within 8 hours after a critical incident. Purpose is:
    1. Rapid reduction in the intense reactions to a traumatic event
    2. “Normalize” the experience so people can return to their routine duties as quickly as possible
    3. Re-establish the group’s social network so people do not isolate themselves from each other. In recognizing similarities to others, people often are more willing to help each other in troubled times
    4. Provide information on acute stress and a few reminders about how to reduce it
    5. Assess group’s response to determine if a full debriefing should be scheduled
  • Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) - A system of interventions designed to mitigate the adverse psychological reactions that may accompany critical incidents. The CISM process is not therapy; its focus to minimize the harmful affects through psychological first aid, education and follow-up. The CISM process uses trained peers, chaplains, and mental health professionals, and is managed by CISM Team Coordinators who are usually the Employee Assistance Program Coordinators (EAPC) located at Work-Life Centers.
  • Critical Incident Stress Management Team - The Critical Incident Stress Management team normally consists of:

 .      Team Coordinator

    1. Mental Health Professional
    2. Chaplain, and

Peers, all of whom have been trained in Peer Support CISM
