Purpose Statement

The purpose of the IAEM-USA K-12 Education Caucus is to address emergency management issues specific to K-12 school districts. School districts are the backbone of our communities across this nation. They are taking a more proactive role in preparing their students, faculty, staff and visitors for responding to, recovering from and mitigating against all threats and hazards while creating a more resilient school district. The purpose of this caucus is to provide school district emergency managers a voice on a national and international scale to ensure that their needs also are being addressed by government and industry officials.
