8 The C:denville Democrat/Pathilnder S lanuary 1, 1976 /ii !! i Serious crime in the United States for the first nine months of 1975 rose 11 percent over the same period a year ago, Attorney General Edward H. Levi announced today. This increase compares with a 16 percent increase recorded in the first nine months of 1974 over a similar period in 1973, Mr. Levi said the current increase in crime is not as large as in past periods which is "encouraging." Serious crime for all 1974, for example, was 18 percent higher than in 1073 and. during the first six months of 1975. rose 13 percent over the same period a year ago. "But it must be remembered." Mr. Levi said. "the figures show an increase, and the crime rate remains at an intolerable level." m Today's figures were contained in the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports released by FBI Director Clarence M. Kelley. They are based on t_he crime experiences of city. county, and state law enforcement agencies throughout the nation. The violent crimes of murder. forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault increased eight percent in this nine-month period. Robbery rose 11 percent, aggravated assault seven percent, murder three percent, and forcible rape two percent, according to Mr. Kelley. Larceny-theft had a reported increase of 13 percent, with burglary up 10 percent and motor vehicle theft two percent higher. These property crimes as a group increased 11 percent in the nine-month period this year.

They are making solid progress, too, but they admit there's much more to do in elevating civil preparedness in the Mountain State. The dreadful list of calamities-a grim roll including Buffalo Creek, the Silver Bridge and Farmington- is too easily recalled. More recently, the tornado which ripped the roof from the Meadow Bridge High School gymnasium in April, 1974, is too fresh in memory to permit an "it can't happen here" attitude. SINCE IT HAS "happened here" all too frequently, state civil preparedness educators have directed their efforts toward an all- hazard approach to achieve the aims of the State Board of Education in the area of safety mobilization. Stemming from a 1971 board policy resolution, the long-range plans call for each school and county system to produce a coordinated emergency plan integrated into a county program as a part of the overall county emergency services capability.

In addition, the plan calls for safety awareness instruction on each grade level for tomorrow's school patrons, too. By the end of the 1975-76 school year, it is hoped, each county district would have a workable comprehensive emergency plan at its disposal. ACCORDING TO S. Wayne Cox, State Coordinator of Civil Preparedness School Education, a good start has been made in making available top-quality films, books, teaching guides and other in- structional materials to schools throughout the United States. Among them is the oft-praised "Your Chance to Live" program provided by the U.S. Defense Civil Preparedness Agency. The trend toward wise usage of safety promotion programs at the school and "grass-roots" levels needs more momentum, Cox added. "Some schools and even some entire county school systems have been slow to recognize the importance of civil preparedness education. We are very interested in putting these programs and films at their disposal," he said. The films, manuals and other classroom materials include step- by-step data on coping with calamities such as floods, forest fires, air pollution alerts and ex- plosions. Others also include ex- perience-based knowledge of post- disaster problems such as epidemics, looting and survivor assistance. As outlined by Cox, the in- structional segment is only one part of the overall civil preparedness strategy. Careful planning of the individual school's role and the larger roll of entire school systems in each county's comprehensive emergency system is the other vital element. IT'S NOT SO simple as it sounds, Cox explained, and that's why greater involvement by more schools is so important today. First, the schools and other agencies must determine which measures must be taken in each emergency situation. The various needs requiring firemen, policemen, medical per- sonnel and crowd control measures must be accurately assessed. Moreover, the schools must determine which services they may render to the general community. These services might include mobilization of school buses, auditoriums, classrooms and proper use of special skills of school per- sonnel, such as first aid and fire- figh~ng. "We can't predict disasters with accuracy, of course," Cox asserted, "but civil preparedness programs can diminish the impact of tragedies if careful planning and community cooperation are based on m epth awareness such as those we have, available for all schools in West Virginia today."
