Template: School Emergency Drills & Exercises: Quality Checklist and Evaluation Forms
One of the cornerstones of School Safety Management is the regular practice of emergency drills. Scholars, educators, and disaster management practitioners agree that children can be taught procedures and skills to help prevent injuries and deaths. If these procedures are well-understood and practiced school drills can be vital to protecting lives and preventing injuries in the face of a variety of threats.
The goal of school drills is to ensure the safety of every student, staff, or visitor, in the event of a disaster or emergency, and where possible to safeguard school property.
