Park District Crisis Program

Serve and Protect™ will design, train, and implement an Active Shooter/Workplace Violence Training Program customized to the unique needs of your park district. Our Crisis Programs are consistent with the Run Hide Fight Model.

Limited Security.

Your Park District facility is filled with children in after- school and summer programs. However, a Park District Facility is much less secure and supervised than a public school. A Park District must be conducting Active Shooter Lockdown and Evacuation training in coordination with the local police department, just as schools do.


Active Shooter Lockdown and Evacuation Plans are written and designed in coordination with local law enforcement. We address details like evacuation locations and managing reunification of children with their parents.


Every teacher, instructor, or worker at a Park District or recreational facility needs a strong working knowledge of their role should an Active Shooter incident occur.  While the staff may include teenagers and inexperienced young adults, we train them to ensure that they react appropriately during a crisis or a violent incident.

Police Contact.

Our programs provide your police department with the information they need in order to make immediate contact with your staff when there is a nearby danger. We establish the protocol and fully test it.


Our Plans design and implement a notification system to alert all buildings, fields, and locations if there is an armed intruder on the premises or nearby.

Training Exercises.

Both scheduled and unannounced drills are key to ensuring that staff performs responsibly. During an unannounced drill, staff are told that it is only a drill. The difference is that they are not notified ahead of time, and will therefore respond more realistically. Part time employees and front desk personnel should be actively involved in the drills to the same extent as instructors and full time staff.


Our Programs include a disciplined evacuation process should it be necessary to evacuate children from your building and grounds.  We establish the protocol for flow, transport, and coordination with staff at the evacuation site.


Following evacuation, reunifying the children in your custody with their parents can be a complex procedure. You must ensure that children are being picked up by a legally appropriate parent or caretaker.


Our Crisis Plans use plain language to notify people of a threat – not confusing and often misunderstood code words.

Be Prepared. Be Confident.
