Emergency Procedures

Henry Ford practices safety drills on a monthly basis throughout the school year.  Students practice procedures for Fire, Earthquake and Lockdown situations.  We follow the Big Five Emergency Procedures under the San Mateo County Office of Education guidelines.

                                                           We are prepared for emergency situations                                                                                     Each classroom has an exit map and emergency information posted near the exit door, along with an emergency kit.

Each classroom is assigned a buddy class in the event a classroom teacher needs to remain behind with a student(s).

In the event of an emergency, students will only be released to an authorized adult. Be sure to update emergency cards every year as they include the names of the authorized adults and current phone numbers.

Specified members of the Henry Ford staff are trained in First Aid, CPR and AED procedures. 

The School Safety Plan is updated annually, and reviewed at the beginning of every school year. 

The Automated Emergency Defibrillators (AED) are located in the office and in the MUR (cafeteria).

In case of an emergency or disaster, please tune to the following radio stations for instructions:                                         KNBR 680 (English) or KIQOI 1010 (Spanish)
