School Crisis Kit

Lyon County Emergency Management

“Knowing how to respond quickly and efficiently in a crisis is critical to ensuring the safety of our schools and students.  The midst of a crisis is not the time to start figuring out who ought to do what.  At that moment, everyone involved – from top to bottom – should know the drill and know each other.”

 Margaret Spellings
