This course provides individuals and school teams with the knowledge and tools needed to update their all-threats/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 FEMA’s Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG 101) for developing an EOP and explains how to engage the whole community—including parents/guardians and outside agencies such as law enforcement, fire, public health, and emergency management—in school preparedness and planning for and mitigating all threats and hazards. Throughout the course, participants will have the opportunity to review their existing EOP and identify areas for improvement and have an opportunity to build partnerships and develop positive working relationships among first responders and school staff.
• Refine or update the school's emergency operations plan (EOP) or procedure document.
• Identify how to train and exercise their school EOP.
