Parental guide to “Hour Zero” program released

Clearview Public Schools advises parents what to in an emergency

By Landin Chambers The Stettler Independent

Clearview Public Schools have released a guide to help parents react in an emergency.

The “Hour Zero” program has now been implemented across the division and covers a number of possible emergency situations including fire, intruder, and environmental events.

The plan works in conjunction with other local response plans, since a school incident could require the involvement of numerous agencies.

Clearview collaborates closely with local first responders to ensure plans are coordinated with appropriate agencies. Clearview’s plans do not replace the authority of law enforcement, fire or EMS–as staff members work in full co-operation with these agencies.
