Monmouth County takes steps to deal with school emergencies
With the potential for a terrorist attack threat in all schools, Monmouth County is making sure schools in the area are prepared for anything.
Harry Conover, Director of the Office of Emergency Management, is responsible for visiting schools in Monmouth and making sure superintendents, principals and faculty are on the same page when it comes to executing crisis plans - from fire drills and hazardous material checks to potential terrorist attacks.
Conover admits that there are a lot of unknowns when it comes to assessing a school's vulnerability. However, he believes communication between schools is key to keeping kids safe.
