                                       National Crime Prevention Association



Each protocol shall include procedures deemed appropriate by the board or governing authority for
responding to threats and emergency events, respectively, including such things as notification of appropriate
law enforcement personnel, calling upon specified emergency response personnel for assistance, and

copies of the revised safety plan, building blueprint, or floor plan in the manner described in this division not
later than the ninety-first day after the revision is adopted.

Copies of the safety plan and building blueprint are not a public record pursuant to section 149.433 of the
Revised Code. Notwithstanding section 149.433 of the Revised Code, a building floor plan filed with the
attorney general pursuant to this division is not a public record to the extent it is a record kept by the attorney
general. This paragraph does not affect the status of a floor plan kept as a record by another public office.
The board or governing authority, each law enforcement agency and fire department to which copies of the
safety plan and building blueprint are provided, and the attorney general shall keep the copies in a secure
place.

(D) The board or governing authority shall grant access to each school building under its control to law
