Safety Advisory Committee

Our board-directed mission is to bring together a group of experts with specific skills to help improve the safety of our children by evaluating and improving upon systems that are currently in place. The initial impetus came as a result of the horrific events that took place December 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary. We began meeting weekly with the Ferndale Police Department, mapping projects, meeting with our principals, and identifying inconsistencies and vulnerabilities within our district.

A recommendation was made to form a committee that would help us reinvent ourselves and our work. We have a talented group of members and welcome inquiries of those interested in joining our committee.

If you have questions about the Safety Advisory Committee, contact Mark Deebach’s assistant, Tammy Longstaff at or 360-383-9203.
