Four Actions. Four Directives. One Outcome In 2009, The "I Love U Guys" Foundation introduced the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) to districts, departments and agencies. The first school district to implement the program was Jefferson County, Colorado. The district of Columbine. Since then, thousands of schools, districts, departments, agencies and organizations have adopted the protocol. Even though the materials were originally geared to a K-12 environment, other organizations made them work for their situation. From Credit Unions to Courthouses to Community Colleges to Cathedrals, the SRP has been integrated into safety plans in business, institutions and organizations across the US and Canada. As a result, the Foundation has worked with safety professionals to create materials for all audiences. The SRP is simple. It's based on four actions. Each action is followed by a directive. The outcome is shared language and shared expectations between civilians and first responders, in a crisis. LOCKOUT! Secure the Perimeter When a threat is outside of the building, it's used to safeguard the occupants of a building LOCKDOWN! Locks, Lights, Out of Sight When a threat is inside of the building it's used to secure individual rooms and keep occupants quiet and in place. EVACUATE! Followed by a location Used to move people from one location to a different location in or out of the building. SHELTER! Followed by hazard and safety strategy Used for group and self protection.
