Kelly DeJonge: Sessions
November 2, 2022 | 11:00 am – 12:00 pm | Breakout Session
Critical Incident Response Team Project
This presentation is designed to provide an overview of the regionally based Critical Incident Response (CIR) teams that have been developed in Wisconsin based as part of a 2018 BJA Mental Health STOP federal grant that WI DOJ – OSS received.
The CIR teams will provide support, resources, and assistance to all K-12 school districts in Wisconsin that have been faced with a critical incident. We will work with the impacted school to learn the needs of the educational community, and provide a right sized, solutions-oriented approach to crisis response and recovery best practices that “do no harm”.
Attendees will have the opportunity to understand the vision and mission behind the project, learn about the components of the CIR teams, understand the development and overview of the project, and recognize the CIR structure and response procedures.
