Developed in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Team SAFE-T (School and Family Emergency Training) is an alliance of public and private organizations organized by a group of concerned citizens in Los Angeles, California who joined together to increase education and awareness in response to various natural and man-made emergencies/disasters throughout California. The Team SAFE-T Partnership is dedicated to serving the citizens of California by providing a free, fully integrated, health, safety and character curriculum along with comprehensive family support materials accessible in seven languages. Administered through Californian's schools, it reaches students and families through an annualized standards-based curriculum and support materials developed to give easy-to-understand, age appropriate instruction. Greatly supported by Masters of Disaster from the American Red Cross and additional resources from the American Academy of Pediatrics, FEMA for Kids and the U.S. Geological Survey, Team SAFE-T teach age-appropriate public health and safety education to students in grades K-12. The program includes lessons on school culture, anti-violence, attendance, all-hazard preparedness, character, and first-aid and is the key educational component of “Be Smart, Be Responsible, Be Prepared, Be Ready!,” the comprehensive disaster preparedness campaign for California.
