If you “Know The Plan,” you know what to do! That’s the simple message behind the new “Know The Plan” web site being launched by the Fort Worth ISD.
Know The Plan is the name given to Fort Worth ISD’s Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) for dealing with unexpected emergencies. The need to prepare is real. Personal or community emergencies disrupt thousands of lives each year. Being prepared and knowing what to do can reduce fear, anxiety and losses that accompany localized events and wide spread disasters. Awareness and preparation may reduce the impact of a disaster and possibly even avoid one altogether.
Know The Plan was recently presented to the District Board of Education. The development of this tool was a collaborative project of parents, grandparents, care-givers and many different administrative departments. You can watch the same presentation that Trustees watched by clicking here.
The Fort Worth Independent School District is committed to the safety and security of students, faculty, staff and visitors in its facilities. In order to support that commitment, the District urges all students, employees and parents to “Know the Plan” by regularly reviewing and practicing emergency mitigation/prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery procedures relevant to natural, technological and security hazards.
