For Ron Wiedbusch, safety ..., 21 May 2008 [cached]
For Ron Wiedbusch, safety consultant for Ypsilanti public schools, people are still the best way to make any school safe.
"Nothing replaces staff visibility," he said."Nothing replaces the proximity of people to deter problems that will take place."
Although Wiedbusch said he reviews the 120 cameras scattered throughout the Ypsilanti school district every day, he emphasized that technology is still just meant to complement the teachers and staff in charge.
In Saline, Williams said human interaction always has been the most important tool to keep students safe.
"The more we're out and about, the better and clearly the cameras are secondary in supporting that," he said.
Safe Schools Principal gets the message out to all students 04/07/05, 7 April 2005 [cached]
Wiedbusch starts with kindergarteners teaching safety message
"Nothing is 100 percent secure," said Ron Wiedbusch, Ypsilanti Public School District's Safe Schools Principal, who is speaking of situations like the one recently experienced in Red Lake, Minn. "Not churches, malls or anything.
Wiedbusch certainly does start early, bringing a prevention message to kindergarteners that dangerous behavior or items need to be reported to adults."We tell them, 'You deserve to be safe.' It's their right."
He continues this message through every grade level in the district, holding between 80 and 100 assemblies per year.But, his wide-ranging network, built up over the past 11 years to keep kids safe, encompasses much more than a message.It is in action every day.
"The bus drivers are key," Wiedbusch says.
Wiedbusch works with many community agencies to coordinate efforts to keep the kids safe on their way to and from school, as well as during school hours.From his mobile command center in a white van with bright red markings and flashing lights, Wiedbusch is in constant contact with district officials and community agencies.A recent attempt to lure a child into a car was a prime example.
"The girl ran to two YCUA workers," Wiedbusch explained, "who happened to be former students who knew me.They called me right away.With lights and siren going, I was there in about 90 seconds.I beat the police.But, the important thing is that she was safe."
Wiedbusch has coordinated efforts with the city and townships in the area, as well as Eastern Michigan University security forces and neighborhood associations.
They have maps of the grounds and blueprints of the buildings themselves, so they can respond quickly in case of emergency," says Wiedbusch.
Wiedbusch works with the district's nurse, C. J. Falsetta, on CBRNE threats, too.
Wiedbusch refers to them as "stay puts."
"Basically, they're where we need to keep the kids inside and turn off all the air intakes from outside that would bring toxic stuff into the buildings," Wiedbusch explains."We needed to have something in place, just in case, for example, a local industry had a hazardous or potentially hazardous disaster, like Marsh Plating had a couple of years ago." March Plating Corp. had a hydrochloric acid leak in 2003
Wiedbusch has been Safe Schools Principal since 1994, when the position was created in response to vandalism and gang activity."People forget that 11 years ago many of our schools were fenced so no one could get in. We've been able to open things up and have beautiful campuses again since putting this program in place."
Wiedbusch was chosen to run the program because of his multicultural contacts in the community, as well as his energetic and enthusiastic idea-generating in the areas of security and student safety.
That energy and enthusiasm continues, as Wiedbusch explains, "This coming fall, we're planning on having a large-scale mock disaster.
