To require the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish a School Safety Clearinghouse, and for other purposes. Introduced September 23, 2019
Today we review best practice literature for disaster avoidance, management and recovery. We start with the consensus products of ANSI-accredited standards developing organizations and, time-permitting will review the current state of legislative proposals which supplement but sometimes compete with privately developed standards setting organizations.

It is tornado season in the United States and several hundred schools, colleges and universities have (historically) proven to be in the path of them. Hurricanes also spawn tornadoes. This legacy product sets the standard of care for safety, resilience and recovery when education community structures are used for public safety. Comments on the latest revision are due August 10th.
We find a number of consensus products built around recommendations made by the American College of Surgeons -- The Hartford Consensus -- a consortia consensus product to inform the formulation of policies and procedures to enhance survivability from intentional mass casualty and active shooter events.
Proposed changes to best practice literature relevant to education communities happen at a rate of 100 to 1000 times per day. We identify titles in motion, assign them a priority, then set up a separate markup session to respond to the call for public comment. Topics are grouped as shown on our CALENDAR.
The pandemic inspires a reconfiguration of the best practice titles for public safety statutes. NFPA 1600 established a common set of criteria for all hazards disaster/emergency management and business continuity programs. It will slip a cycle and be re-cast as NFPA 1660; close-coupled with FEMA's National Incident Management System. Public input on the reconfigured product is due November 13th.
This paper demonstrates a quantitative method for evaluating risk and conveying the results into a power system design that is scaled according to hazards typical for any emergency management district. These methods employ classical lumped parameter modeling of power chain architectures and can be applied to any type of critical facility, whether it is a stand-alone structure, or a portion of stand-alone structure in a city or on a campus.
Underscoring the important role that standards play in supporting safety in the health care context, the CDC and ANSI has referenced standards for personal protective equipment used in healthcare. The guidance outlines scientific evidence and information on national and international standards, test methods, and specifications for fluid-resistant and impermeable.
We continue roll out of our user-interest platform to school districts, colleges, universities and university-affiliated healthcare systems in all 50-states. To lower #TotalCostofOwnership for the #WiseCampus every state is approached with sensitivity to its history, culture, governance regime, asset-base and network of expertise. #StandardsIdaho
