Welcome to the Hanover County Public Schools Safety and Emergency Planning site. From here you can read about and view the school system’s "all-hazards" and four-phase approach to emergency planning. The school system utilizes the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS) to manage emergencies – the same systems utilized by our local, state and federal governments.  For more information on NIMS and ICS, visit our News Blog.

This site contains information related to current and historical safety and emergency planning topics such as:

  • Bullying prevention
  • Health related, man-made, and weather related threats
  • Internet safety
  • First responder partnerships
  • School closings

Check back often and contact Sherol Southerland, Director of School Safety, if you need additional information.
