Working to make LAUSD disaster-ready and resilient.
The Office of Emergency Services in the Division of District Operations provides emergency management for LAUSD. The office oversees the Safe School Plan system and provides guidance to schools for emergency response protocols, supplies and emergency drills. The STEPS program and the award-winning YOYO 7 campaign are both products of this office. The LAUSD Emergency Operations Center is managed by the Office of Emergency Services, which also provides representation to LA City and LA County and coordinates with other agencies in a large emergency. The office also coordinates the use of schools as public emergency shelters managed by the American Red Cross.
