School Emergency Kits

School Emergency Kits

We know that school children and teachers need to be prepared in the event of a natural disaster, an evacuation, or any other situation that would force students to shelter in place. Simpler Life offers high-quality survival kits that can be used to help schools meet their safety and emergency planning standards while remaining within their budgets.

Our School Emergency Kits include everything teachers and students need to survive in a classroom lockdown or evacuation situation for up to 72 hours. The kit includes supplies for communication, hygiene, food/water, lighting and first aid to stop bleeding until emergency medical assistance can arrive. It also comes in a lightweight backpack that makes it easy to carry and hang anywhere in the classroom.

Preparing for the Unexpected: What Every School Emergency Kit Needs

If you have a student with special needs or a child who takes medication, it is a good idea to add their personal items into the kit. This is also a great opportunity to talk to them about emergency preparedness in an age-appropriate way.

If your school has an emergency plan, it’s important to keep your go kits up-to-date by discarding expired items and checking batteries regularly. We also recommend re-evaluating the contents of each kit during the start of the year to make sure it contains all the essentials for your school’s unique circumstances and facilities. Every school will have different needs, so be sure to consult your school’s safety plans before buying school emergency kits.
