Welcome to the Tool Box

The Tool Box is a virtual library of tools developed by school and higher ed emergency managers in the field containing resources pertinent to the needs of schools, school districts, state education agencies, regional education agencies, and institutions of higher education and their community partners, as they engage in the process of school and higher ed emergency management planning. These resources include sample drills, tabletops or other exercises; job descriptions; memorandums of understanding with community partners; organizational charts; planning guidelines or sample policies; and components of school or higher ed emergency operations plans, tools, and templates.
