Ensuring Safety in Our Schools: Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) Open House for School Administrators
INFORMATIONAL LETTER: 17
TO: Superintendents and Elementary School Principals
I realize that this is not providing you with very much advance notice; however, I want to inform you that the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) will host an Open House for School Administrators (Superintendents and Principals) and Fourth Grade Teachers on Tuesday, September 23, 2008, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM in recognition of National Preparedness Month. I encourage you to participate in a wonderful opportunity to learn more about MEMA and the Student Tools for Emergency Planning Program (S.T.E.P.).
The Open House will include:
The S.T.E.P. Program is being piloted in four school administrative units in Maine. Representatives of these schools will be our special guests. Some will have already presented this pilot program in their schools and their information will be useful to you. An opportunity for additional schools to be added to the pilot program is being offered. A representative of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be present to explain the program and answer any questions you may have. An ultimate goal is to have this program offered to each fourth grade in every school in Maine annually. This initiative is modeled on the very successful "Learn Not To Burn Program" and is aimed at improving the status of comprehensive emergency preparedness in Maine.
Light refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP before September 22, 2008 12:00 Noon, to Angie Roberts at MEMA via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org , by fax to: (207) 287- 3178 or by telephone at: 1 (800) 452- 8735.
If you have any questions, please contact Rayna Leibowitz, MEMA Preparedness Specialist, by e-mail at email@example.com or by telephone at 1(800) 452-8735.
I hope that you are able to participate.
