California Emergency Management Agency Secretary Mark Ghilarducci is urging parents and educators to remain vigilant in the wake of last week’s shooting tragedy in Connecticut.


“Friday’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was unimaginable and horrific,” said Ghilarducci, Governor Brown’s top Homeland Security Advisor.  “This tragic event is a sobering reminder that threats like this, even as infrequent as they are, can happen anywhere.


“I urge all teachers, parents and community members to pay attention to signs of distress in others and potential risks to the public.  Don’t wait.  If you think something isn’t right, report it right away.”


Ghilarducci recommends all schools should also review and ensure their emergency plans and security procedures are in place, up to date and understood.


The California Emergency Management Agency has put together a resource webpage for parents, teachers and anyone wanting to know how to get involved in making our schools and workplaces safer: www.calema.ca.gov.
