This is a 2-day course, March 27 and March 28, 2014
Course Description: This 2-day course provides schools with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to refine or develop an all-hazards school emergency operations plan (EOP) and to identify how to train and exercise the school EOP. This course follows the guidance set forth in the FEMA Comprehensive Preparedness Guide, CPG 101, for developing emergency operations plan and explains how to engage the whole community—including parents/guardians and outside agencies such as law enforcement, fire, and emergency management—in school preparedness and planning.
Course Purpose: The purpose of the Multi-hazard Emergency Planning for Schools course is to enable schools to review the school EOP to determine areas for improvement, make changes and updates, and identify how to train and exercise.

Through this course, participants will be able to build partnerships and develop positive working relationships among first responders and school staff.
