School Crisis Plans Should Address Utility Failure

The recent power outages in the wake of heavy storms in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions have left more than 1.8 million people still without power.  These types of situations arise from time to time and when they occur during the school year can have a significant impact on the operation of school facilities.  This situation helps to show why it is important that school emergency preparedness plans should address utility failures.
