Emergency Team "Toolbox"

Emergency Team “Toolbox”

 Each school’s Emergency Response Team should consider developing a “toolbox” to have available for use during an emergency situation.  Items in the toolbox should not be used for anything other than emergency preparedness training activities.  A member of the Emergency Response Team should be assigned to keep the toolbox updated (change batteries, update phone numbers, etc.).  The toolbox should be portable and readily accessible for use in an emergency.
