Taking Action: Creating Model Emergency Management Plans for Schools, Institutions of Higher Education and Houses of Worship : Browse Recent Ideas

As part of his plan to reduce gun violence, on January 16th the President directed the Departments of Homeland Security, Education, Health and Human Services and Justice to create model emergency management plans for schools, institutions of higher education, and houses of worship. As part of that effort, these agencies are seeking input on what should be included in these plans and how students and staff can best be trained to follow them.

Please share your ideas on what a school, institution of higher education, or house of worship should consider when developing and implementing a comprehensive emergency management plan, including ways the institution could involve the community or other stakeholders in drafting the plan; key issues the plan should address or that agencies should consider as they develop model plans; best practices for training staff, students and users of a facility to follow a plan; as well as best practices for how communities may plan to effectively recover from an incident.

Your ideas will help us understand what works best in your community—and how others could learn from your success. Together, we can make the nation more resilient and secure.

This campaign will be open for new ideas, comments and votes until March 22.
