Lodi High School hosts school safety training workshop

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – For parents of children who find themselves in school emergency situations, including situations where there are active shooters, the times when they don’t know if their children are safe are nerve-racking. In those times, reunification is critical, allowing parents to know their children are safe and bring them home.

Lodi High School participants practiced the standard reunification method Tuesday by conducting a simulation to prepare for the moments after a school incident.

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said training is essential for multiple reasons.

“I want parents to know that in situations like this, local school officials and law enforcement and our school safety office are working to prepare in case an incident occurs,” Kaul said. “Staff are as well trained and prepared as they can be, and there is a plan in place to get information to parents as quickly as possible.”

Attorney General Josh Kaul said he also believes that preparation is critical to limiting the tragedy and trauma of school-related disasters.
