PREPARING FOR A SAFE AND SECURE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR
Although school may have adjourned for the summer, districts should already be preparing for the new 2017-2018 school year. Summer is a great time to assess and repair school facilities like playgrounds, athletic venues and chemistry labs. Summer is also a good time to review emergency operations plans and prepare for staff and student training.
2017 HURRICANE CHARLIE STATE EXERCISE
The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) developed and sponsored a series of exercises to test key elements of the state's hurricane preparedness program. This year's full-scale exercise, "Hurricane Charlie," was named in remembrance of the Galveston's Emergency Manager, Charlie Victor Kelly Sr., and conducted June 1-9, 2017. It focused on testing ground transportation along Texas' interstate highways – mainly in DPS Region 2 – from Beaumont to Galveston.
