School Safety Resources

Posted by .

The following resources are guides for developing  emergency operations plans for schools, institutions of higher education, and houses of worship.

They can be customized to serve your community. The plans incorporate lessons learned from recent incidents.  The planning process outlined in these guides will help schools, colleges and houses of worship align their emergency planning practices with those at the national best practices.

If you have any questions on the resources, please feel free to leave a comment or email me at and I will follow up with you.
