Safety Trainings, Emergency Response Plans & Evacuation Drills

Safety in Schools

Each school day our nation’s schools are entrusted to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for millions of primary and secondary students in government, public and private schools. Families and communities expect schools to keep their children safe from all threats – external or internal, natural or manmade. In collaboration with local government, community and other stakeholders, the schools have to take steps to plan and prepare to mitigate these threats. Every school must have an Emergency Response Plan that should include the course of action that will describe how school authorities plan & prepare to handle the emergency, what would be the appropriate response of teachers, staff and students in event of an emergency to ensure the safety of life, property and environment.
