JIT kits provide guidelines about how to manage, operate, and communicate within an evacuation hub. All materials are designed to be easily understood by any school employee or community members.
A kit contains job aids, maps, contact and communication information, emergency operations plans, signage, and other basic supplies for use during a catastrophic disaster. The kit also includes guidelines to support a S.A.F.E. Neighborhoods planning Group.
The website provides training and information to help you and your neighborhood recover from major disasters.
The mission of the Schools Aid Families in Emergencies—S.A.F.E. Neighborhoods is to train individuals in each elementary school neighborhood to open, staff, and operate their own neighborhood evacuation hub at the school until outside help arrives after a catastrophic disaster.
S.A.F.E. Neighborhoods teaches individuals to create a 96-hour kit, “grab your kit, walk to school” in the event of a catastrophic disaster.
The program assists and relies upon “neighbors helping neighbors” to assess critical and immediate emergency needs, keep residents informed, and reunify families.
