The Standard Reunification Method (SRM)
Recovery Starts When the Crisis Begins.
A critical aspect of incident response is the accountable reunification of students with their parents or guardians. The SRM provides school and district safety teams with proven methods for planning, practicing and achieving a successful reunification during what are often chaotic, anxiety-filled scenes. A predetermined, practiced reunification method will help defuse emotion at the site.
SRM relies on site-specific considerations, so successful planning and implementation demands collaboration with administration and responding agencies. A plan for reuniting students and parents is the responsibility of schools and districts to maintain the chain of custody for every student.
