The Six Steps to Developing a High-Quality Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)

This virtual guided group introductory course will cover the six steps to developing a School EOP.  Built in activities and discussions will help the group to plan and achieve your goals as you progress.  By the end of this course, you will have an EOP team, hazards identified, goals and objectives, courses of action, the beginnings of a written plan, and a training and exercise schedule developed for your school.
