The sheriff’s office takes appropriate measures to ensure security of the courthouse, equipment, or records remaining in the building and provide for judicial officer safety. Emergency Response Team The chief justice/judge or court administrator directs the deployment of the Emergency Response Team which consists of the Advance Team, the Leadership Group, and the Essential Function Team, and coordinates judicial officer safety with the sheriff’s office. Members of these teams will have their Go Kits ready for movement at all times (or they are pre- positioned). Non-Emergency Response Team Personnel In the absence of guidance to the contrary, non- emergency response personnel present at the courthouse (or affected court facility) at the time of an emergency notification will be directed to proceed home or to other facilities to await further instructions.

Sample COOP Plan Activation Checklist (Pg. 2) Sample COOP Plan Activation Checklist (pg. 2) Action (Sample Information ) Emergency Response Team at Alternate Site(s) Following arrival at the alternate facility, the court administrator or his/her designee orders the cessation of operations at the courthouse (or affected court facility). The court administrator will notify appropriate authorities that court operations shifted to the alternate facility. Upon arrival at the alternate facilities, the Emergency Response Team checks-in and receives further instructions from the court administrator/designee. The court administrator disseminates administrative and logistics information to the Emergency Response Team upon arrival. If the situation is expected to persist for an extended period, the court administrator/clerk of court requests the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to forward mail to the alternate facility(s). Following activation and deployment of the Emergency Response Team, the court leadership may request additional personnel at the alternate facility or at other relocation facilities if necessary. Vital Records are accessible at the alternate site. Telecommunications and information systems support personnel shall maintain all necessary and up-to-date files, documents, computer software, and databases required to carry out essential functions. Go Kits: Office heads are responsible for providing guidance to their members on the contents of these kits, which may include items such as hard copy forms and documents, software, databases, publications, laptop computers, battery operated tape recorder, batteries, and communication devices. Go Kits should be pre-positioned at the alternate facilities and maintained at team members’ residences because the Emergency Response Team may be at home when the activation order is received and access to the Go Kits may be difficult or impossible if they are stored at the courthouse or other court buildings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
