REMBC and Severe Weather Safety
 
We are all keenly aware of the tragedies at Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, Newtown CT, and unfortunately other school locations. School Safety Plans, Such as our REMBC, will always give detailed attention to potential acts of violence in our schools. But we must realize that what may be the greatest threat to the health and safety of our students is a natural disaster (severe weather, tornado, hurricane, etc.)
 
Severe Weather Safety and the impact of a natural disaster are major components of our REMBC. As an example, we have in place:
  • NOAA Weather Radios at each school that will provide immediate weather watch and warning information
  • GEMA Approved Safe Areas in each of our school.
