Emergency Response Information for School Facilities
National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities
Crisis planning includes making preparations for managing school buildings, grounds, occupants, and rescue and recovery personnel during and after a crisis. In "Practical Information on Crisis Planning: A Guide for Schools and Communities, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools" states: When a crisis occurs, emergency responders will immediately need a great deal of information about your school campus. They will need to know the members of your crisis response team, how the site can be accessed, and the location of utility shutoff valves. Whether emergency response information is provided on paper or electronically, it should include: building and site information; human resources information; building keys; and other information about what to do before, during, and after a disaster befalls a school and its community.
