School Safety


Legislation signed into law by the Governor on April 21, 1999 directs the Georgia Emergency Management Agency to provide training and technical assistance on the issues of school safety to the education, emergency management and public safety communities of Georgia. These services are provided through the staff of the School Safety Unit. OCGA 20-2-1185 mandates all public schools to develop a safety plan addressing natural disasters, hazardous materials, transportation concerns, weapons and potential terrorist activities. These plans must include students, parents, law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services.
