Thank you for attending the Emergency and Disaster Planning Summit!

When an emergency strikes, will you be ready?
Attendees came together at the 12th Annual Emergency and Disaster Planning Summit to discuss, plan and prepare for disasters at schools. Leading experts shared their knowledge and first-hand accounts of emergency situations. Some of the key topics of discussion were:

  • Focus on recovery as well as preparation
  • Ensuring the mental and physical well-being of staff and students
  • Evaluating and testing emergency plans – before they are needed
  • Non-traditional threats like, crowds, bio-hazards and cyberbullies
  • Being prepared to make decisions quickly

These discussions have helped to increase the safety of students and staff by sharing lessons learned and creating awareness. Thank you for being a part of it. We look forward to seeing you in 2016 when we will continue the conversation with the latest developments on this ever-important matter.
