Pierce County’s emergency training for schools earns national recognition

Pierce County Emergency Management’s school emergency preparedness program has been recognized for innovative training by the School Safety Advocacy Council.

The program was chosen for its all-hazard emergency preparedness approach to school safety. The award will be presented by the council at its national conference in July.

The Pierce County school program, developed in 2007 as a collaborative effort between Emergency Management, first responders and school districts, covers natural and human- caused disasters as well as violence in schools. Facilitated by local responders, training modules include bullying, evacuation, lockdown, shelter-in-place and more.
