The Ohio Emergency Management Agency, in cooperation with the Ohio School Safety Center within Ohio Homeland Security, has developed the K-12 School Severe Weather Tabletop Exercise Toolkit. This toolkit was adapted from material provided by Cuyahoga County’s ReadyEx initiative.
The March 3, 2020 tornadoes in Nashville, Tennessee are a reminder of how dangerous severe weather can be. The additional tragedies related to severe weather at schools in Enterprise, Alabama in March 2007 and Moore, Oklahoma in May 2013 are also testaments to the importance of planning prior to a potential disaster.
This free exercise resource is designed to help primary and secondary school staff, first responders, and other partners prepare for strong winds and tornadic events.
