Prepare for Disasters

Prepare for Disaster
(in part, taken from South Carolina Emergency Management Division)
 

South Carolina is threatened by natural and technological hazards. The threat posed by these hazards is both immediate (e.g., hazardous chemical spill, hurricane, tornado) and long-term (e.g., drought, chronic chemical release). These hazards have the potential to disrupt day-to-day activities, cause extensive property damage, and create mass casualties. Historically, the greatest risk was perceived to be from natural hazards (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, severe storms, floods, earthquakes). However, the continued expansion of chemical usage is raising the risk posed by technological hazards (e.g., hazardous chemical releases/spills) in South Carolina.

To see the list of possible hazards please visit Disaster Preparedness, and click on the links for information.

Just as Laurens County School District 56 is preparing for emergencies in an effort to make our schools more safe for staff and children, it is imperative that parents plan for the same emergencies.  Please visit the following websites for information on family emergency plans that you may need should a disaster strike our community.
