VI.       Emergency Code System
Effective communications, information management, and information-and intelligence-sharing are critical aspects of emergency response and emergency management.  For this reason, FEMA through their NIMS (National Incident
Management System) requires that K-12 schools and institutions of higher education apply and use common and consistent terminology for school and campus incidents, including the establishment of plain language communication standards.  Common terminology enables emergency management/response personnel to communicate clearly with each other and effectively coordinate activities, no matter the size, scope, location, or complexity of the incident.
Therefore, the EOSD code system will be as follows for all schools:
Evacuation, Reverse Evacuation, Shelter in Place, Lockdown, Active Shooter, All Clear
