School Emergency Response Planning Meeting Addresses Reunification

St. Mary Parish Sheriff Scott Anslum, chiefs of police, and school administrators came together for an emergency response planning meeting this morning. The meeting, led by the St. Mary Parish School Board and Sheriff’s Office school resource officers, addressed the process of reunifying students with their parents or guardians in the aftermath of an emergency event.

Sheriff Anslum says, “We pray that we never have an emergency event at our schools. But we plan together as a community of first responders so that effective action can be taken in all aspects of emergency response. From that first 911 call to the reunification of children with their loved ones, our goal at every stage of response is to protect our children and save lives.”

In the event of an emergency at a school, parents and guardians should keep in mind that active scenes on a campus will be inaccessible. Information on where and how reunification will take place would be provided directly to parents and guardians by the school system as well as local law enforcement agencies and local media outlets. Always pay close attention to any emergency response planning guidance sent home with students by the school.

Anslum says, “I commend the St. Mary Parish school system and our own school resource officers for their continuing work to keep our schools safe.”

Morgan City, Berwick, Patterson, Franklin, and the Chitimacha Tribal police departments attended the meeting with Sheriff’s Office school resource officers and St. Mary Parish schools administration.

The affect of the support from parents and the community can be seen clearly in the kids. The level of competition is increasing every year.” 

Sheriff Anslum thanks the coaches and workers for their involvement in the league. “You have to have a passion to coach. Without that the league would not be possible. Thank you for volunteering your time. I’d also like to thank the parents for their continued support of the program.”
