Safety & Emergency Management


McDade Safety & Emergency Management team is responsible for mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery programs within the District. McDade ISD has emergency preparedness and operations plans, and continually conducts drills and training with its staff and students. We partner with our local and regional first responders and emergency management personnel to ensure we are prepared to provide exceptional service before, during, and after any emergency conditiions. Emergency Operations Plans are reviewed annually and updated as necessary. Fire evacuation drills, tornato / severe weather drills, lock-out, and lock-down drills are conducted in accordance with TEC guidelines and Fire Department regulations.

Standard Response Protocols & Campus Emergency Drills


We train our staff and students in the Standard Response Protocols (SRP); Secure, Lockdown, Evacuate, Shelter, and Hold. These five simple procedures give our staff and students the tools they need to properly initiate emergency response actions for any emergency that may occur on a campus. These SRP’s are practiced regularly each school year at all campuses in the formof drills. State law actually dictates that number of times each semester each drill has to be practiced. In addition to the SRP Drills, we also have Fire Drills, Severe Weather Drills, Evacuation Drills. All drills are reported by each of the campus administrators to the McDade Office of Safety and Emergency Management within forty-eight hours of the drill. 

Each of our SRP’s are listed below along with a brief description of the protocol. You can click on the icon of each SRP for more detailed information on each protocol.
