Woodland Primary School held an earthquake drill today, Tuesday, May 15, 2018.
All Woodland schools practice numerous drills as part of the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) program, designed not just for individual scenarios, but as the response to any scenario. By standardizing vocabulary, students and staff can understand the response and status of an emergency event.
All Woodland schools practice safety drills to prepare for the event of an emergency.
Earthquake and Hazardous Material (Hazmat) Drills
During earthquake drills, students and staff practice a shelter drill, required for when the need for personal protection is necessary. This drill also applies to the event of a hazardous material accident. Students and staff may evacuate to a designated shelter area; seal their classrooms; drop, cover and hold; or get to high ground.
Talk with your students.
We encourage you to discuss the details of these experiences with your students and get feedback on how they felt during the drill. As always, should you have any questions or safety concerns, please feel free to contact your school administrators.
Woodland Public Schools greatly appreciates your cooperation in helping to prepare our students for the event of an emergency.
