Know the Plan

Know The Plan

  • With the cooperation of local emergency response agencies and government entities, we address the four phases of emergency management –

    Prevention and Mitigation:

    A written plan that incorporates presentation and mitigation can decrees injury or loss of life.  It can eliminate potential hazards before they can cause harm and decrease the loss of district property.

    Preparedness:

    Having a plan before an emergency occurs is important to the protection of life and property.  A healthy and safety community is one in which all stakeholders are empowered to take action to prevent loss of life, injury or damage to property.

    Response:

    Knowing how to respond to emergencies like:

    • Fire or explosion
    • Medical emergency
    • Bomb threats
    • Severe weather
    • Hazardous materials
    • Student/Parent Reunification

    Recovery:

    If a disaster occurs, efforts to return a school or the Distract to a state of “normalcy” must be carefully timed and coordinated to meet the needs of both students and staff. The Fort Worth Independent School District will carry out a recovery program that could involve both short-term and long-term activities.
