Carisbrooke Elementary Emergency Preparedness Emergencies can come on all forms and sizes, some are easily within our ability to manage, others may overwhelm normal abilities and be defined as a disaster. It is difficult to know what an emergency will look like, but we do know that the number one priority is the safety and care of the Carisbrooke students and staff. As a school we would like to be as ready as possible for any of these events. The School Emergency Plan provides direction during an event, but supplies and equipment are essential for successful implementation. The Carisbrooke PAC and School has developed a 5 year plan for the purchase of emergency supplies and equipment to support an evacuation, as well as care for our students once evacuated. We are currently nearing the end of year 2.
