Steps for Developing a School Emergency Management Plan. Helpful Hints for School Emergency Management. Volume 2, Issue 1
US Department of Education
The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools strongly encourages schools and school districts to develop emergency management plans within the context of the four phases of emergency management: prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. In addition, schools should collaborate closely with police, fire and emergency services personnel and community partners (e.g., public and mental health professionals) who can assist with the development of plans that address a wide range of crises. The steps presented in this issue of "Helpful Hints for School Emergency Management" will help to guide schools and school districts in developing comprehensive, multihazard emergency management plans. (Contains 1 figure and 2 resources.) [This publication was funded by the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education under contract with Caliber Associates, Inc.]
