Waukegan Illinois Public Schools Make Great use of their REMS Project Grant

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.
