Planning for Schools
Natural disasters and other emergencies can happen at any time, and when they happen at school, everyone should be prepared to handle them safely and effectively. Administrators, teachers, staff, parents and students can work together to promote and maintain school-wide safety and minimize the effects of emergencies and other dangerous situations.
The best way to help students feel safe about disasters is to educate them about what to do. Through comprehensive education and on-site practice drills, both students and faculty can better understand that they are a vital part of a school’s emergency plan.
