EBCA – Emergency Plans

The School Board recognizes that State law requires the district to implement an Emergency Response Plan that conforms to the Incident Command System and the National Incident Management System.

The Superintendent is responsible for ensuring that at least two times per year, the district conducts emergency response drills. The Board or its designee will establish relations with local and state emergency and law enforcement authorities. The Superintendent or his/her designee will serve as a coordinator/liaison with these authorities.

Additionally, the Superintendent is responsible for ensuring the district’s Emergency Response Plan addresses hazards such as:

Acts of violence
Natural disasters
Fire
Hazardous materials
Medical emergencies
Other hazards deemed necessary by the School Board or local emergency authorities

The School Board will review this policy annually.
