Emergency Procedures

Every school and facility in our District must have an emergency operations plan (EOP) that utilizes the Incident Command System (ICS). This manual equips our buildings with an EOP template, ICS job descriptions, emergency procedures, emergency contact numbers, forms and checklists, and a guide to drills and drill procedures to complete an emergency operations plan.

The objective is to become more effective in mitigating, preventing, preparing, responding, and recovering from emergencies and disasters; and to be better partners with local emergency response efforts in saving lives, protecting school property, and preserving the environment.
