Emergencies hit schools at the most inopportune times. From severe weather, wild animals on the playground, active shooters, or the death of a student or staff member, emergencies take many forms. Being prepared with a plan that has been created by your school’s team and local partners, approved by your trustees, and practiced by your school community is vital to increasing student and staff safety. Emergency Operations Plans (EOPs) provide guidance and practical solutions on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergency situations. This planning process helps schools minimize injuries and property damage during an incident, and expedites the recovery process following an incident.
