On Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET, the REMS TA Center, on behalf of ED's OSHS, hosted a Webinar to review the purpose, benefits, and process to install our Emergency Management Virtual Toolkit. The toolkit was designed to help state and local education agencies, emergency management agencies, school safety centers, and others who play a key role in school safety and emergency management share the latest Federal school emergency management training and technical assistance resources and information for schools in their state or district.

Presenters in this Webinar provided an overview of the desktop and server installation processes and how the toolkit can be disseminated. They also shared the different ways state and local education agencies have chosen to use the toolkit.

This 1 hour Webinar included a live PowerPoint presentation as well as a Question and Answer session following the presentation.
