Safer, Stronger, Smarter: A Guide to Improving School Natural Hazard Safety
FEMA recently worked with the Department of Education and other federal partners to develop the Guide on Developing High Quality School Emergency Operations Plans (U.S. Department of Education, 2013), a school safety planning guide that covers a wide range of possible hazards and threats. The goal of FEMA P-1000 was to develop a companion guide that provides additional information specific to natural hazards to help schools be better prepared and better able to respond, recover, and mitigate future natural hazards. This Guide focuses on operational guidance (what to do before, during and after an event) as well as physical protection (what can be done to the structure and facility to improve safety). It was developed with input from design professionals, emergency managers, school administrators, teachers, representatives of concerned parent groups, and other relevant entities.
