The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Supportive Schools administers the REMS TA Center
to serve two critical functions aimed at helping education agencies, with their community partners,
manage safety, security, and emergency preparedness programs. We build the preparedness capacity
(including prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery efforts) of schools, school districts,
institutions of higher education (IHEs), and their community partners at the local, state, and Federal levels.
We also serve as the primary source of information dissemination for schools, school districts, and IHEs for
emergencies via the REMS TA Center Website.
