Safer, stronger, smarter: A guide to improving school natural hazard safety

Source(s):  Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

This guide provides up-to-date, authoritative information that schools can use to develop a comprehensive strategy for addressing natural hazards. It presents information and guidance on:

  • Identifying natural hazards that could potentially impact a school;
  • Making new and existing school buildings safer for children and staff, and more resistant to damage during natural disasters;
  • Planning and preparing for effective and successful response during a natural disaster;
  • Recovering after a natural disaster as quickly and robustly as possible, and being better prepared for future events; and
  • Engaging the whole community in the entire process in order to improve school and community disaster resilience. '

This guide is intended to be used by administrators, facilities managers, emergency managers, emergency planning committees, and teachers and staff at K through 12 schools. It can also be valuable for state officials, district administrators, school boards, teacher union leaders, and others that play a role in providing safe and disaster-resistant schools for all.
