Updating and Maintaining School Emergency Management Plans. Helpful Hints for School Emergency Management. Volume 2, Issue 3, 2007
US Department of Education
"Helpful Hints" offers a quick overview of school emergency preparedness topics that are frequently the subject of inquiries. Developing and implementing comprehensive, multi-hazard emergency management plans is an ongoing process that must be consistently reinforced and strengthened. Opportunities for reviewing, strengthening and updating emergency management plans can be found in the implementation of the elements described in this issue of "Helpful Hints," namely: conduct emergency exercises, collaborate with community partners, focus on sustainability, and conduct evaluations consistently. The contents of this document are not prescriptive best practices for every school or school district, but rather suggestions to consider in a school or district's emergency management efforts. A brief list of resources is also included.
