Experiences with and Preparedness for Emergencies and Disasters among Public Schools in California
Kano, Megumi; Bourque, Linda B.
NASSP Bulletin, v91 n3 p201-218 Sep 2007
This study assesses schools' experiences with, and preparedness for, emergencies and disasters. Data are collected by mail survey from 157 public schools in California. The majority of schools have experienced emergencies in recent years. Although respondents generally feel their school is well prepared for future emergencies, limitations are identified in their disaster plans, availability of emergency supplies, training, and interagency coordination, with some differences between primary and secondary schools. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
