While Tuesday's bomb threat ended safely, it is important for schools to have crisis plans in place.
School administrators, law enforcers, and other emergency responders must act quickly to take control.
The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium hosted a free Department of Homeland security certified course on crisis management training Tuesday in Albany.
Emergency responders learned how to respond to an emergency involving a school building or entire school system.
"Well we saw it at Virginia Tech, there were two people initially killed, those people were killed at a dormitory by the shooter, two resident agents of a dormitory. The shooter then proceeded to walk 1.5 miles across campus to the building where another 20 plus people were killed. Had the appropriate response plan been in tact, we may have prevented many multiple additional deaths," says Tim Maloney, University of Findlay Educator.
Maloney says history has proven, that in many instances, other students know before hand that a crisis might happen.
He urges students to report anything they hear that could potentially be dangerous for any student.
