Saint Patrick's Day Safety

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), "St. Patrick’s Day is one of the deadliest times on our nation’s roads. During the 2015-2019 St. Patrick’s Day period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18), 280 lives were lost in drunk-driving crashes."
To help promote St. Patrick's Day safety, the NHTSA website includes a playbook, fact sheet, social media graphics, social media sample messages, banner ads, and more.

General safety considerations for St. Patrick's Day include:
  • Whether walking or driving, have a plan to get home safely
  • Use the buddy system to help ensure safety
  • Eat and stay hydrated
  • Never leave drinks unattended
  • Know the signs of alcohol poisoning
Digital Threat Assessment on April 8th via Zoom

The Illinois School and Campus Safety Program is pleased to announce the class Digital Threat Assessment will be held on April 8th from 9:30 am-4:00 pm via Zoom. Digital Threat Assessment training will enable participants to establish a framework to better assess all threats by constructing and considering the digital baseline of a threat maker by locating, documenting, and evaluating social media data through a threat assessment lens. A significant portion of the day will be spent engaging in hands-on exercises on the most prevalent social media platforms and associated search applications.
