Student Tools for Emergency Planning (STEP)
- Michelle Torres
State Outreach Coordinator
Student Tools for Emergency Planning (STEP) is a program that teaches 4th and 5th grade students what to do in emergency scenarios and empowers them to implement life-saving preparedness initiatives at home. The program was developed by the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA) and is sponsored by FEMA.
STEP is offered at zero cost to schools; only requires 1 hour of instructional time during the school year; supplies up to 15 hours of optional materials that can cover a variety of subject areas and align with national and state standards; and provides teachers with all the instructional materials needed, including copies of student handouts, instructional booklets, and DVD’s.
