CRASH CART

Your Rolling Command Post

A crash cart is a rolling box that allows you to store everything you need to set up a command post. There may be times that a district or site cannot set up their command post inside a building due to extensive damage or an unsafe area. In that case, a crash cart is fast and easy to maneuver outside so that you essentially have a rolling command post. ICS4Schools can help you set up your crash cart and provide a comprehensive list of suggestions on what to include in your car.

MOBILE TOOL KIT

A Mobile Tool Kit Will Help a School Manage a Large Scale Emergency

When you think of a Mobile Tool Kit, think of a rolling recycle bin that has an abundance of supplies that can help a school district or school site with managing a large scale disaster on their campus. The last thing administrators want to do during an emergency is run around and try to think about what it is they would need for setting up a command post, or setting up a triage area, or needing rescue equipment and having to find all of that in a matter of seconds. That just doesn't work! That's why a Mobile Tool Kit is so important. Below, you will find a sample list of equipment located within the Mobile Tool Kit.

HAZARD ASSESSMENT MAPS

Have Your Campus Assessed for Best Case Designated Areas

ICS4Schools assists school districts and school sites with a comprehensive safety plan that begins with a "hazard assessment" of every site.  During this assessment, ICS4Schools personnel and site administrators walk the entire campus, identifying and recommending best practices for safety response. Once these areas are identified, ICS4Schools builds response maps for easy identification of designated areas. Areas such as:  student evacuation area, parent check in for emergency release of students, reunification area for parents and students, utility shut offs, triage area, and any other specially needed area that needs to be identified.
