"Gotta Go Bags"

"Gotta Go Bags" are school emergency bags that are filled with supplies that school personnel may need to have or to take with them in an emergency.

A minimum of two bags should be kept in each building, each of which should be kept in a different location in the school should one of the locations not be accessible. It is a good idea to keep a bag at an outside location, such as an evacuation site.

There are two levels of "gotta go bags:" school level and district level. Each bag should be updated periodically and any necessary changes or replacements made.

The "Gotta Go Bags" form offers a check off list of basic items schools and districts may want to include in their bags.
