"To ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff, schools and school districts nationwide should create comprehensive, multi-hazard emergency management plans that focus on the four phases of emergency management--preventionmitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. All-inclusive plans and well-executed processes will ensure the continuity of school and school districts' daily business operations in the face of natural and man-made disasters, criminal activity on campuses and outbreaks of infectious diseases. 'Schools must prepare for the expected to be prepared for the unexpected,' asserts Robert Laird, director of school safety at the Mississippi Department of Education."
