Emergency Preparedness is a central component of comprehensive School Safety. The most important consideration in both Emergency Preparedness and School Safety efforts is the health, safety and welfare of the students and staff. A comprehensive Emergency Plan places a strong emphasis on prevention using strategies that range from building design to discipline policies and programs that improve school climate.
