Emergency Preparedness for Families

Not only can emergencies take place at school, but at home as well.  It is important for families and children to prepare for whatever emergency might take place - in and outside of school.  Tennessee schools are required to have emergency plans.  Similarly, families need to develop their own plans.  Below are resources provided by the American Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and other emergency management organizations to help you and your family prepare for the unexpected.
