Conference promotes school emergency preparedness

Emergency preparedness was the focus of a safe schools conference recently in North Bay.

Principals from all four local school boards took part in the April 24-25 event, along with Ontario Provincial Police and the North Bay Police Service.  

Board officials say school leaders were given current information on protocols to train staff for various emergencies, including bomb threats and lockdown procedures.  

Threat and behaviour analysis and violence threat assessments were also covered.

“Ensuring safe schools isn’t merely a goal. It’s a fundamental promise to every student, parent, and educator,” says Éric Foisy, Superintendent of Education at Conseil scolaire catholique Franco-Nord. “ Our conference aimed to unite voices and strategies, establishing a comprehensive framework for fostering safe, inclusive, and empowering learning environments where every child can thrive.”  

The conference also included mental health training.
