The Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Technical Assistance (TA) Center, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, is now offering a three and one-half hour training overview of the four phases of emergency management: Prevention-Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery. This course provides districts and school emergency management teams with a basic understanding of the key components of school emergency management.
Our expert training team will provide a high-level overview of the four phases of emergency management. For participants who are new to the subject, this is an excellent introductory learning opportunity. For participants with experience in school emergency management, this training is a great “refresher course.” The session will include case study scenarios in which you can test your decision-making abilities in responding to emergency situations.
- Define and describe what is involved in each of the four phases of school emergency management
- Understand the importance of having an emergency management plan encompassing all four phases of school emergency management
- Understand the importance of taking an “all-hazards” approach to planning
- Appreciate the importance of collaborating closely with your community partners
- Practice decision-making skills in responding to emergency scenarios during both the Response and Recovery phases of school emergency management
