Creating your Safety Plan
Choose Safety Plans from the Dashboard.
The Safety Plan Dashboard will list all of your sites and school year options.
Press the Green + icon next to the plan you want to start.
A dialogue box will appear with options to start your plan. Either Start with a Blank Plan, Copy an Existing Plan (from another building in the same year), or Import Data From Last Year to New Plan (from another year in the same building).
For the Copy and Import options, you'll then need to select the original, completed safety plan.
A disclaimer will also be viewable from this screen, depending on your state this information will change.
Once you have selected the appropriate options, click Submit.

Using the Safety Plan Wizard
Once your plan is created, you will be in section 1, which gives a brief overview of the plan for your state. From there, you will be able to click the blue arrows to answer the questions in order or click on Safety Plan Overview to see the complete list of questions.
Since states may have different requirements, your overview information may differ from this guide. However, the editing and navigation features apply for every state.
In each section, there will be questions, hints, and your answer area. Click in the answer area to type information or copy/paste from another source.
Your information will save once you hit a blue arrow or safety plan overview after entering in your answers for that section.

Safety Plan Overview
When information is entered it will be reflected on the safety plan wizard overview. A green check indicates information has been entered. A red dash indicates an item is missing information. When all questions in a section are answered, the section will be marked Completed. As long as information is missing, the section will be marked Not Complete.
When all sections are complete, select Mark this Plan as Complete. This does not eliminate the ability to edit the plan. This will also enable the option to copy data from school year to school year.
Working with Annexes
In the Safety Plan Wizard, there are annex sections where you can add and edit procedures for various emergencies. Click edit next to an annex. Once inside, you have the ability to type or copy/paste information from another document.
Annexes can also be used in the Flipcharts module of the Emergency Management Suite. Any changes made to the annexes within the Safety Plan Wizard will automatically reflect on the corresponding Flipchart.
Selecting a Contact
You can select a contact person for the desired safety plan. This is helpful for others to know who to contact in regards to questions for each plan. To add a contact, select the edit button and search for a user on your site.
Exporting your Safety Plan
You can turn the safety plan wizard into a document at any time regardless of whether all sections are complete. Use the export options at the top of the page to compile all your information into either a PDF or Word document.
Once the document is loaded you can save or print the file.
Safety Plan Overview
The safety plan overview will reflect any plans currently in progress or completed. Plans marked as complete will have a green title with a completed date listed below.
Additional Printable Documents
Your safety plan wizard may include another area with additional printable documents. Depending on your state, these sections will differ in title, description, and the information displayed when the document is exported. They may include state-required documentation, contact sheets, or abbreviated annex information.
