Clark County educators participate in reunification training.

Clark County school districts have been training their staff to respond in a crisis.

This includes practicing how to reunite kids and their parents should a chaotic emergency ever happen.

The Clark County Emergency Management Agency and “I Love You Guys” Foundation hosted the two day training at Springfield High School.

The training sets a standard for the county, said Michelle Clement-Pitstick, director of Clark County EMA.

“The buildings might be different, the layouts might be different, but the processes across the county are the same," Clement-Pitstick said. "We can use other schools that aren't impacted to bring those resources over to help facilitate the reunification a little bit faster.”

She said they hope to create a county-wide reunification team in the future.
