Helpful Hints for School Emergency Management - Engaging Administrators in School Emergency Management [open pdf - 453KB]
This document provides strategies for engaging school administrators in ongoing emergency management activities to reduce threat and security risks and to prepare for managing and recovering from a crisis. "Events in the past decade have proven that proactive school emergency management planning is essential for guiding school administrators and first responders through an established and predetermined set of responses and procedures for their school community. Collaboration between district and school-based administrators should take place before, rather than during or after, an emergency or crisis."
