Why do classrooms need survival kits?
School administrators cannot predict when or if a disaster will impact their school. The odds of a natural disaster occurring during school hours vary depending on where you live. On the West Coast, a large earthquake could knock out electricity and disrupt water lines leaving injured students in darkened buildings without potable water to drink.
Conversely, A Lockdown situation can happen at any time, forcing students and staff to shelter-in-place for hours or more without food, water, or a bathroom.
Failure to maintain adequate safety standards could open administrators up to liability if losses or injuries occur due to a facility's lack of preparation. The simple addition of basic survival supplies ensures the employees and students under your protection have the supplies needed to turn an already dire situation into a survivable situation.
