Emergency Preparedness Program

The Long Beach Unified School District Emergency Preparedness Program addresses a wide range of crises and disasters.  An adaptable comprehensive safety plan and incident management system includes procedures to guide schools with team-based response and recovery actions.  To maintain a state of readiness, students, teachers, principals, and support personnel participate in scheduled emergency drills and training throughout the school year.

Planning efforts are revisited by each school and updated annually.  Schools review the emergency operations and response plan action steps for earthquake, fire, flood, power failure, severe weather, threat, and other events.  Schools store emergency supplies and equipment to support the critical roles of sheltering and protecting students.  Team-based emergency procedures focus on reuniting students with their families at the end of the school day.

We urge parents and guardians to participate in efforts to keep their children safe.  Talk with your children about the importance of following the directions of their teacher and principal during an emergency.  If you have any questions, please contact the school principal, or the Emergency Preparedness Program Manager at 562-997-8338.
