Standard Response Protocol (SRP)

A uniform, planned, and practiced response to any incident is the foundation of a safe school. The SRP is action-based, flexible, and easy to learn. It rationally organizes tactics for response to weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety. 

The SRP’s development is ever evolving, created with extensive collaboration between experts such as first responders, school districts, and families. Its tactics are data-driven, researched and based on experience and best practices.

The SRP premise is simple. Five specific actions are communicated and performed during an incident. Each action is labeled with a “Term of Art” and is followed by a “Directive.” Execution of the action is performed by all active participants, including students, staff, teachers and first responders. This aligns everyone for a swift and coordinated response.
