SECTION 5
STORING SUPPLIES

SUGGESTED EMERGENCY SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT

First Aid Supplies:

Each school site should provide supplies included in the recommended list of first aid supplies. There should be a first aid kit for each classroom that can be used for day-to-day needs as well as earthquake emergencies.

Disaster Medical Supplies:

Additional medical supplies should be provided for use in disasters only. Disaster medical supplies can be specially packaged in units to be used when necessary in an emergency. The earthquake supplies should be replaced immediately when used for day-to-day needs. The disaster supplies should be packaged in units to serve students as follows:

Enrollment: 1-750 1 kit
Enrollment: 750 -1000 2 kits

Special needs students should provide an extra supply of required medication to be with them at school or while enroute (i.e., insulin for diabetics).

Non-Medical Emergency Supplies and Equipinent:

In addition to medical supplies, schools should also have available a number of other tools, supplies and equipment.
