Additional Information:

The National Service Project for Cedarville High School is the Cedarville Emergency Weather Plan. A meeting was first held with Crawford County Emergency Management Director for recommendations. Invitations were then sent to all city leaders for a meeting in the high school library. Attendees included the mayor, city council, police department, fire departments, superintendent and school board, church leaders, business managers, and a Medical Reserve Corps Representative. EAST students made a PowerPoint presentation to determine the amount of interest in developing a plan. A sample brochure and website were presented as a means of disseminating information to the public when the project is complete. Online feedback forms and hard copies were available to the crowd to gather information and ideas. The team researched emergency plans of cities who have already experienced disasters. The final plan will be published on the school website and brochures will be placed in all city offices, churches, and businesses and distributed to over 1,000 families in the school district.
