Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools Technical Assistance Center [website] [open html - 13KB]
"The REMS [Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools] Technical Assistance [TA] Center's primary goal is to support schools, school districts, and institutions of higher education in emergency management, including the development and implementation of comprehensive emergency and crisis response plans. Established by the OSDFS in October 2004, the REMS Technical Assistance Center supports REMS and EMHE grantees in managing and implementing their grants and in sustaining their efforts over time. Non-grantee local educational agencies (LEAs), schools, and institutions of higher education (IHEs) also may receive support to improve and strengthen their emergency management plans. The TA Center disseminates information about emergency management to help schools, school districts, and institutions of higher education learn more about developing, implementing, and evaluating crisis plans. In addition, the TA Center helps the OSDFS coordinate technical assistance meetings, manage listservs for sharing emergency management planning information, and respond to direct requests for technical assistance."
