Herkimer BOCES Health and Safety Service teams with state police

Teachers and staff at Frankfort-Schuyler Central School District recently received a presentation from state police about thinking how they would respond if an active shooter emergency ever occurred at school.

Brian Derochie, school and community outreach coordinator for New York State Police Troop D in Oneida, told the teachers and staff that wherever they are in the school building, they should consider what they would do if an incident started.

“My goal is that they develop a personal plan so that if an incident occurs, they can react to it,” Derochie said. “I want them to think about the things they do during the day, so they’re not just responding during an event, so they already have a plan if something does happen.”

Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES Health and Safety Service Coordinator Adam Hutchinson arranged for Derochie’s presentation at Frankfort-Schuyler on Friday, March 4, and hopes other Herkimer BOCES component school districts will decide to have the same presentation soon.

The Herkimer BOCES Health and Safety Service has been working closely with state police recently to improve school safety with efforts such as the presentation at Frankfort-Schuyler, conducting safety audits by walking through schools and taking drug dogs through schools, Hutchinson said.

“It’s just increasing the availability of services to the component districts,” he said.

Derochie’s presentation covered some of the history of school shootings and the detailed timing of what happened during the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting. He discussed the definitions of important terms such as hold in place, shelter in place, lockout and lockdown and provided tips such as making sure you’re quickly able to lock your door if needed.

Frankfort-Schuyler Superintendent Bob Reina said the presentation was part of many safety efforts at the district such as updating safety plans and installing safety measures through the building project.

“Everyone has to know what the plan is, and everyone has to know what the procedures are,” he said.

Reina also thanked Frankfort police for attending the presentation and working with the district.

“I can’t tell you how much we appreciate it,” he said.
