The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse will be hosting a webinar on September 15 at 2:00 PM EDT on National Preparedness Month featuring guidance, best practices, and resources for kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) schools.
The session will be held in coordination with representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Ready Campaign (Ready.gov) and Individual and Community Preparedness Division.
Speakers will discuss programs, tools, and resources to empower youth to learn the hazards that affect their community; understand how to stay safe in an emergency; practice critical emergency response skills; and lead preparedness-building activities in their communities. The webinar will also cover the 'whole community' approach to emergency preparedness, as well as ways K-12 school communities can build capacity and capabilities to prepare for the range of disasters and emergencies they may face.
The discussion will feature additional school safety-related resources available through SchoolSafety.gov, as well as a Q&A session.
