Mitigation and Resiliency Strategies for Schools and Institutions of Higher Education
Time: 3:00 PM ET
On Friday, September 22, 2017, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET, the REMS TA Center, on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education's (ED) Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS), will host a Webinar on how K-12 schools and districts and institutions of higher education (IHEs) can better plan to mitigate the effects of emergency events and create more resilient sites.
Presenters will describe key considerations for mitigation; present the process for including mitigation activities in planning efforts; describe how school and IHE mitigation and resiliency plans integrate with those at the local and state level; and share practical examples of how schools and an IHE have made their campuses more resilient to emergencies. This event will also feature a dedicated 15-minute Q&A session during which presenters will field questions from participants.
