Emergency Response Crisis Management (ERCM) is a specialized project under the Center for Safe Schools. The project was initially funded through a grant from the United States Department of Education, Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. Funding continues through the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
The ERCM website contains practical resources, knowledge about process and procedures in developing comprehensive safe schools plans, especially those related to the emergency response and crisis management components. The ERCM staff encourages and supports Pennsylvania schools in developing and improving comprehensive All-Hazards Plans in conjunction with their local emergency service organizations and agencies.
