How the school’s communications system integrates into the local disaster and response law enforcement communication networks.
How the school will communicate with students, families and the broader community before, during, and after an emergency.
How impacts on students will be communicated to the community, including the impact on activities related to the school but not necessarily at school or during normal school hours. How the school will ensure effective communication with people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs. The lessons that have been learned from past school emergencies underscore how important it is to prepare school administrators, as well as first responders to implement an EOP.

Use the information you put together in your disaster plan and the supplies you organized in your disaster kits. If your water is off or unsafe, you can drink from water heaters, melted ice cubes, or canned vegetables. If your gas was turned off, you will need to arrange for the gas company to turn it back on. If the electricity went off and then came back on, check your appliances and electronic equipment for damage. Sleeping bags and flashlights may be quite handy in the days or weeks after a major earthquake. If your home is structurally unsafe or threatened by a fire or other hazard, you need to evacuate.
Once you have recovered from the earthquake, go back to Step 1 and do the things you did not do before, or do them more thoroughly. More like a multi-page booklet on how to and what to include in a Business Continuity Plan; these free templates are a life saver for Business Managers and developers.

By having a school security plan in place to help safeguard students and staff, schools can play a pivotal role in taking preventative measures to stop an emergency event from happening, or reduce the impact of an incident.
Until you are sure there are no gas leaks, do not use open flames (lighters, matches, candles, or grills) or operate any electrical or mechanical device that can create a spark (light switches, generators, motor vehicles, etc.). However, shelters may be overcrowded and initially lack basic services, so do not leave home just because utilities are out of service or your home and its contents have suffered moderate damage. Learn from what happened during the earthquake so you will be safer and recover more quickly next time.
