Press, Articles & Publications

Telgian security expert Lauris Freidenfelds recently shared his knowledge and expertise in the article, “Campus Emergency Operations Plan: Incorporating the Four Elements of Emergency Management” with Campus Security & Life Safety magazine.  In the piece, he explores how each school, regardless of size, should have a general emergency operations plan in place when crisis strikes, as well as more specific incident type emergency action plans in place for these or other emergencies.

“A crisis is an event which alters the normal operations of the organization or threatens/is causing harm to the organization or its’ students, employees and visitors. It may a school shooting, a natural disaster, an active criminal threat, or even a slow moving, evolving situation, such as a weather event,” explains Freidenfelds.

As Senior Project Manager for Telgian Engineering & Consulting, Freidenfelds is responsible for the project management of complex projects, focusing on security and emergency management. His 40+ years of experience include operational security, technology and emergency management programs. His extensive knowledge of emergency management personnel and operations encompasses planning, organizing, and directing security programs and activities, as well as development and coordination of disaster preparedness plans, the mitigation of, preparation for, and recovery from hazards and disasters.
