Welcome to the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Technical Assistance Center! The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools (OSDFS) began administering the REMS (formerly, Emergency Response and Crisis Management) discretionary grant program in October 2003 to help school districts develop comprehensive plans for any emergency or crisis, including natural disasters, pandemic influenza, violent incidents, and terrorist acts.

Technical Assistance (TA) Request

A primary service coordinated by the Center is the provision of responses to emergency planning questions and technical assistance needs. Requests for assistance could range from example REMS plans; to strategies and materials to help with staff trainings; to tips for creating buy-in with stakeholders; to help evaluating REMS plans. Center staff collaborate with a network of local and national crisis planning experts to provide answers to REMS-related questions and to meet any specific technical assistance needs.
