It will help school staff and students to understand any hazard effect and be prepared to react appropriately.

The main objectives of the project are:

(1) to identify, share and implement best practices and methodologies gained from previous EU projects and partners activities,

(2) to create smart tools which define, simulate and evaluate all hazards emergency steps and be customized to the unique district, school, and campus,

(3) to involve the collaboration of interested parties and

(4) to include pupils with disabilities and special needs.
