Emergency Preparedness & Response
The Critical Response and School Emergency Management Guide is a planning model that provides a focus on an "all hazards approach" for incident management and emergency prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation programs and activities. The Guide is a "standard and consistent" model required for all schools, and is consistent with the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) guidelines. City Schools has worked closely with the Baltimore City Office of Emergency Management, which includes Baltimore City Police and Fire Departments, to develop coordinated emergency response procedures. In addition, each City School must have a Site-Based Emergency Safety Plan that is updated annually and reviewed with all building staff.Principals and Assistant Principals:SY 2018-19 Critical Response and School Emergency Management Guide and Site-Based Emergency Safety PlanPlease complete the SY 2018-19 Site Site-Based Emergency Safety Plan Template.Upload completed Plan to TSS by no later than September 21, 2018 (see instructions).Please complete the SY 2018-19 Site Site-Based Emergency Safety Plan Template.
