School and Healthcare Emergency Planning
Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Sections 3313.536 (School Emergency Management Plans) and 3301-5-01 (Requirements for the Emergency Management Plan and Test), all Ohio schools are required to maintain and exercise their Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has provided templates and guidance for all schools to meet these requirements. This information can be found on the Safer Schools website at: https://saferschools.ohio.gov/
If your school(s) is within the boundaries of Cuyahoga County, the Cuyahoga County Office of Emergency Management (CCOEM) is required to review your school plan(s) at least once every three years, and provide signature. In addition to reviewing your school EOP, we can assist with exercise development, and participate in exercises upon request when availability permits.
