Any major disaster could temporarily overwhelm Police, Fire and Ambulance and First Responders. There are many daily conveniences that we all take for granted; running water, electricity, gas, telephones, getting cash from an ATM machine, or even running to the grocery store to pick up milk and bread.
All of us face the possibility of natural disasters, accidents, power outages or intentional acts to disrupt our daily lives. Preparedness is a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluation and improvement activities to ensure effective coordination and the enhancement of capabilities to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters. In the preparedness phase, emergency managers develop plans of action to manage and counter their risks and take action to build the necessary capabilities needed to implement such plans.
Proper maintenance and training of emergency services, including mass human resources such as Community Emergency Response Teams. Learn how to prepare for your family and at your workplace, explore many links to resources and see what to do for your pets. The 2013 Legislature allocated $10 million in competitive grant capital funds to help school districts with implementing an emergency response system (Second Substitute Senate Bill 5197). In addition to the competitive grants, the legislation also required school districts to collaborate with local law enforcement agencies and school security personnel to develop an emergency response system using evolving technology. Defining Emergency Terms for Schools is a 5-minute video tutorial (YouTube) for Washington schools to assist them in their preparedness efforts. Teacher-Classroom Resources Helping children prepare for untimely, possibly traumatic events can decrease their anxiety, and give them a feeling of power in a difficult situation or save their lives. Injuries and deaths during earthquakes are caused by falling objects and collapsing structures. Some of the activities include, bandaging, a relay race, rescue breathing on manikins, choking emergencies, and the proper way to call 911.
The primary emphasis of this initial step in the program is to train members to be mentally and emotionally prepared to act promptly and to develop in them the ability to take care of themselves. Check with your local Girl Scout council for a current list of approved first-aid courses and training schedules. The largest recorded earthquake in the United States was a magnitude 9.2 that struck Prince William Sound, Alaska on Good Friday, March 28, 1964 UTC. The largest recorded earthquake in the world was a magnitude 9.5 (Mw) in Chile on May 22, 1960.
Emergency and disaster drills help to ensure that students and staff are ready to respond appropriately to any disaster. These drills are the basis for ensuring that staff, teachers, and students are ready to put emergency plans into action in the event of a real emergency or disaster. In a major emergency or disaster, community emergency response resources may be stretched, and schools may need to rely not only on their own planning and previous drills, but also on their own emergency supplies.

Many schools have emergency plans, and drill them, but lack adequate supplies to carry out those plans if the emergency lasts for more than a few hours or if help from the outside community is not readily available.
I have answered this question in a guest blog post on the School Health blog: The Weak Link in School Emergency Planning.
In a major emergency or disaster, community emergency response resources may be stretched, and schools may need to rely not only on their own (1) planning, (2) previous drills, and (3) their own emergency supplies. Each school needs to have plans for each of these response scenarios, practice the plans, and ensure that there are adequate supplies to support a successful emergency response.
Contact us now if you need help determining which school emergency kits and supplies will best meet your school's needs. I was asked by one of our key distribution partners, School Health, to write a blog post on School Emergency Preparedness. Growing up overseas in the Philippines and Australia, sometimes gives me a bit of a unique perspective on disaster preparedness.
Interesting enough bomb drills looked a lot like fire drills, but they carried a much more ominous feeling. There are some basics that various disasters have in common that allow for schools to reduce the number of kinds of drills they need to practice. Many schools have now purchased classroom emergency kits for each of their instructional areas and medical and other emergency supplies for their whole school. 2) Ensure that they have adequate supplies to meet the needs of their students and staff in case of a severe disaster.

As a member of the university community you also have a responsibility to familiarize yourself with FIU’s emergency communication plan and be an active participant in your own safety by staying alert to messages from university and local emergency managers. Although the focus is on hurricanes at this time of year, it is important for you to know that FIU plans for all types of emergencies that may affect the university community. Faculty and staff should also take a moment to become familiar with your department’s Continuity of Operations Plan now.
This year we have created an informational poster you can download, post and reference as you make your preparations for the season. Quickly convey the four essential characteristics of health literacy with these eye-catching posters. Combining icons with simple statements, this poster raises awareness about the skills needed to develop health literacy and highlights the link between personal health and community health. Both the Red Cross and FEMA recommend that you try to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours (3 days) following a disaster. Power outages can close grocery stores, put ATM machines out of order and prevent you from doing simple things like putting gasoline in your car.

We cannot control the weather or prevent disasters from happening, but there are steps you can take to minimize risks from known hazards. Professional emergency workers are rapidly overwhelmed in mass emergencies so trained, organized, responsible volunteers are extremely valuable. You should memorize the phone number of a favorite aunt or family member who lives in another state. Teaching young people to know and be able to use practical survival skills when needed is an important part of individual preparedness. In addition, these students must have the necessary relevant supplies that can support the plan of learning for the day: text books, notebooks, paper, pencils, pens, art supplies, computers, calculators, lab equipment, etc.
These plans are key to a successful response to various emergency and disaster scenarios that are possible in each area of the country. I was born just outside of Philadelphia, but I lived with my family in the Philippines for seven years.
As I attended an International School, our school was frequently the target of bomb threats (though the only one that ever went off was crafted by a delinquent high school student and luckily did not injure anyone). We came to know that every time the alarm bell went off and we filed out into the soccer field unexpectedly someone had phoned in a bomb threat to the school. Thankfully in the last several years we have seen many school administrators take steps to provide the supplies necessary to respond to these various scenarios.
As soon as possible after an emergency, you should establish contact with your colleagues and supervisor. Use these posters to reinforce skills emphasized in the National Health Education Standards.
Organizations like Community Emergency Response Teams and the Red Cross are ready sources of trained volunteers.
However, the success of the plan depends in part on the students’ preparation and the supplies that they bring or are provided. However, an emergency plan on its own with not be successful without (1) prepared students and staff and (2) the right emergency supplies for each staff member and all students. Each school should practice these three kinds of drills as they apply to their specific situation and likely emergency scenarios. This is where I began to understand that each school faces its own threats according to its location and circumstances (certainly schools in many other areas of the world weren't having bomb drills at the time - today, these are more common). The University has taken steps to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff and I urge you to take this opportunity to do the same. This means that each school needs to practice for each kind of emergency or disaster that is relevant to its particular circumstances.
