SECTION 5
STORING SUPPLIES

ACTIVITIES

  1. Using the master list of Equipment / Supplies by Committee, determine which supplies are the most critical, decide on needed quantities and estimate costs.
  2. Using Basic School Supplies and Suggested Emergency Supplies and Equipment, have each team meet and develop a plan for acquiring what is necessary. Assign particular procurement and storage responsibilities to team members.
  3. Develop a schedule for each team to follow in a) acquiring the supplies, b) finding appropriate storage space for them, and c) checking and replenishing them periodically.
  4. Using the recommendations in Storing Foods, have every student bring his or her own earthquake kit containing such foods as fruit rollups, granola bars and canned juices. These kits can be stored in each classroom and could come in handy after an earthquake when organized food provision has not yet gotten underway. At the end of the school year the items can be returned to their owners keeping them fresh on a yearly basis.
