GRH Assists EU Schools with Emergency Preparedness

Greater Regional Health assisted East Union Community School District in obtaining supplies to build 60 emergency "ALICE" buckets for instructional spaces. The "ALICE" buckets contain emergency supplies and are intended to be used in case of an intruder or "lock-down" situation.

"These buckets are now ready for assembly thanks to the generous donations from Greater Regional Health, Union County Emergency Management, Union County Public Health, and East Union's Aspire MORE store, said Chris King, Student Services of East Union Schools.

The donation of the buckets was an addition to the formal training in emergency preparedness that director of Union County Public Health, Zach Woods, delivered onsite at East Union Schools.

"Thanks to a team effort between Zach [Woods] and myself, district instruction and support staff, and bus drivers have been formally trained in Stop the Bleed. This training was aligned with our January professional development, 'S.A.V.E. Yourself,' a training similar to ALICE intruder training", commented King.
