Tool Box

The REMS TA Center hosts a virtual library of tools developed by school and higher ed emergency managers in the field. The Tool Box contains resources pertinent to the needs of schools, school districts, state education agencies, regional education agencies, and institutions of higher education and their community partners, as they engage in the process of emergency management planning. These resources include sample drills, tabletops, or other exercises; job descriptions; memorandums of understanding with community partners; organizational charts; planning guidelines or sample policies; and components of school or higher ed emergency operations plans (EOPs), tools, and templates. Please note that the Tool Box is not intended to serve as a comprehensive compendium of ideas "approved" by the U.S. Department of Education or the REMS TA Center.
