The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction is working with 35 school districts across the state to develop a statewide emergency plan. The first step is an online survey. The nine areas the plan will likely address include drought, earthquakes, flood, forest fires, landslides, snow, tsunamis, volcanos and wind storms.
More help for disaster mitigation planning will come from public meetings around the state next year. The statewide plan is expected to be finished by October 2014.
