Emergency Management Virtual Toolkit for Education Agencies Serving K-12 Schools
The Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Technical Assistance (TA) Center has created a Web tool that education agencies can use to disseminate consistent information,
guidance, trainings, and tools on school emergency management to the K-12 schools they serve!
Click here to view the Emergency Management Virtual Toolkit.
This toolkit, which is divided into three sections—develop high-quality emergency operations plans (EOPs), engage youth and the community and connect with other emergency management
practitioners—provides users with an opportunity to populate their own education agency's Website or emergency management Webpage with the latest Federal school emergency management
training and technical assistance resources and information for schools in their state or district.
The REMS TA Center developed this resource-based toolkit to do the following:
- Allow state education agencies to quickly and easily promote the dissemination of current and consistent information on school emergency management at the state level;
- Allow any education agency to quickly and easily provide access to the latest information, resources and training opportunities for stakeholders;
- Allow school districts to have quick and easy access to the tools they need to develop their high-quality school EOPs, engage youth and the community, and connect
with other emergency management practitioners.
As a Web-accessible toolkit, it is intended to be installed locally on a state education agency or local education agency server, and be made accessible via a designated Web
address to practitioners interested in accessing the latest information, resources and training opportunities related to K-12 school emergency management. This toolkit
must first be installed by Information Technology (IT) personnel at your state education agency or local education agency.
