Comprehensive school safety (CSS) policy case study: Developing school plans and performing drills in Los Angeles

Source(s):  Global Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience in the Education Sector (GADRRRES)

With a high regional risk of earthquakes, fires, and school violence, Los Angeles developed and incorporated a Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) into emergency planning, mandated regular earthquake and other emergency drills, and developed a Safe School Plan template for school use in order to coordinate emergency responses and ensure all schools have a safety plan with trained and educated students and staff.

This case study is part of a series of case studies documenting how countries have been developing and implementing Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) policies that address the three CSS pillars: safer learning facilities (pillar 1), school disaster management (pillar 2), and risk reduction and resilience education (pillar 3).
