An Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is a comprehensive document which should be prepared and administered by your school board office, with the necessary refinements made to suit your school location.
Your board's ERP should cover policies and procedures, training and evacuation planning for the following types of situations:
- Man-made - murder, suicide, shooting, hostage-taking, bombing, arson, etc;
- Accidental - chemical spills, transportation (rail, air, road) accidents, equipment malfunction, fire, explosion, etc;
- Natural - tornadoes, hurricane, earthquake, ice/snow storm, etc.
