A Leader In Providing Real-world Emergency Solutions Since 1991.

America's #1 most sought-after Disaster Response Trainer and Disaster Survival Supplier for Schools

Disaster Survival Skills, LLC has been the leader in Disaster Response training for schools since 1991.
After training thousands of school staff and reviewing hundreds of disaster supply caches over the last 26 years, we realized a need for some practical advice and solutions for schools.
We have been asked over and over what supplies and what quantities are really necessary. So we have put together some realistic guidelines along with supplies that compliment your training and will help achieve your planning goals.

With over 33 years of experience in the emergency and disaster response business, we are able to provide realistic and practical training and supplies for schools.

School Disaster Preparedness in 3 Simple Steps

There are 3 main components to a successful school disaster preparedness plan. These 3 components will allow your school to manage and respond to the chaos that a large disaster, such as an earthquake, would create. These are:


1. Planning
Every school plan should include Standard Operating Procedures for the sites Emergency Response Teams.


2. Training
Training provides the skills necessary for your response teams to carry out the plan and it provides confidence to take the right action.


3. Supplies
From First Aid to Search & Rescue these are the tools that will support your Emergency Response Teams skills to provide efficient and quick care to your students and staff.

Missing only one of these 3 main components will leave your school a total chaos.

  • Without a plan, your staff will be disorganized, overwhelmed and confused as to what to do.
  • Without training, your staff may have supplies... but will lack the skills and knowledge to put them into use.
  • Without supplies, your staff may know what to do... but will lack the tools to get the job done.

And Disaster Survival Skills, LLC, provides all of these components to help you in preparing for your school's Disaster Preparedness and Survival.


Planning includes building your Emergency Response Teams,  proper Training for your teams, and calculation of Supplies. We offer a comprehensive School Disaster Preparedness Calculator to help you with your planning. It covers:
