This lessons learned document details a school incident that exposed several valuable lessons for improving school readiness, in particular school emergency and crises management practices. According to the document, school should strive to establish and maintain the following protocols: assign administrators to accessible locations; creat a school Incident Command System (ICS); maintain communication and command center devices in good working order; formalize evacuation and reunification procedures; schedule regular training and practice the plan; and conduct parent and community debriefings after an incident.
