We were pleased to be selected to work on the Readiness and Emergency Schools grant for Waukegan Public Schools in Illinois. The district accomplished a great deal for the size of their grant including:
-Training for several thousand staff members
-Schools safety, security and emergency preparedness assessments for all schools
-Developing an internal team that was trained to conduct annual school safety, security and emergency preparedness assessments
-Completing a number of custom school safety training videos and web courses
-Completely new emergency plan components for building administrators, teachers, custodians, school bus drivers, front office staff and a new after-hours emergency chart
-A series of tabletop, functional and full-scale exercises
This district accomplished a great deal with its REMS grant and we were proud to be able to work with their dedicated planning team.
