Planning for School Emergencies.
Della-Giustina, Daniel E.
This document is designed to provide civil leaders and school administrators with a resource that will enable them to develop comprehensive contingency plans for specific emergency situations. A discussion of disaster and emergency management planning includes an outline of the objectives of emergency planning that were established for this guide. Appendices, which make up the bulk of the document, provide: (1) definitions and general measures of the four elements of emergency management (mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery); (2) a list of resource documents available from the Federal Emergency Management Agency; (3) a list of special considerations essential to school emergency planning; and (4) a list of special factors that should be considered in order to enhance plan implementation throughout schools in the United States. The final appendix is a comprehensive disaster plan designed for a hypothetical high school somewhere in the United States. The plan outlines step by step procedures for administration, faculty, and students to follow when a disaster occurs during school hours as well as related educational objectives to be integrated into the grade 7-9 curriculum.
