We all look forward to achieving the safest and most prepared schools for our children. Below are examples collected from other schools.
"No matter who we are or where we live, we all share a basic concern for the safety and well-being of our young people. Their welfare is the most telling measure of our nation's success - and their potential is the most promising element of its future. It is up to us - all of us - to safeguard that future."

PTA/PTSA Preparedness Chair Information
Preparedness for emergencies and disasters, as well as the prevention of accidents is a serious concern of those who care for children in the home, at school, and in the community. Activities to promote safety, injury prevention and emergency preparedness can be incorporated in all PTSA/PTA interests.
When it comes to school safety and emergency preparedness; all aspects of planning, execution, corrective actions, documentation, supplies, and training are the school’s and school district’s responsibility. The PTSA/PTA plays a supporting role; we can help the district, administrators, staff, emergency coordinators, nurses and principals with their permission. Opportunities may include fund raising, supporting grant requests, parent education, observing/participating in school drills, purchasing supplies, inventory audits, restocking, disposal, overall organizing, documenting, newsletters and collaborating with other E-Prep chairs in your school feeder pattern.
Supplies and Emergency Containers
This toolkit is designed to help you assess your Schools Emergency Supplies and give PTA chairs support if your PTSA/PTA chooses to provide funding and resources.
Sharing PTA / PTSA / School Districts
The combination of internal and external bench-marking helps to identify the most important gaps between an organization’s current state and where it wants to be, helping to create both a road map and a plan for change. We encourage our parent leaders to visit other councils, PTA's and School Districts. Explore what others are doing in the area of Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness and bring home new approaches and methods. Identify best practices and ensure we capture them on our Success Stories page and this page.
