Plan the courses of action to evacuate school buildings and grounds.

The planning team should consider the following when developing goals, objectives, and courses of action:

  • How to safely move students and visitors to designated assembly areas from classrooms, outside areas, cafeterias, and other school locations.
  • How to evacuate when the primary evacuation route is unusable.
  • How to evacuate students who are not with a teacher or staff member.
  • How to evacuate individuals with disabilities (along with service animals and assistive devices, e.g., wheelchairs) and others with access and functional needs, including language, transportation, and medical needs.
