This course provides school district teams with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to review, enhance, and sustain an all-hazards/threats emergency operations plan (EOP). In every unit, emphasis is placed on working with the whole community—including parents/guardians and outside agencies such as law enforcement, fire, and emergency management—on planning for and mitigating all threats and hazards, including active shooter/mass casualty incidents. Through this course, participants will learn how to leverage existing relationships and build new working relationships with community-based protection, response, and recovery organizations to help their schools better plan for, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from emergencies.
