GEMA gives Colquitt County a thumbs up

December 17, 2004

Colquitt County - During a time of panic, would your child be safe at school?

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency has given its stamp of approval to the safety plan in Colquitt County Schools .

The schools have strict guidelines on what to do during a natural disaster, violence, terrorism or threats.

Colquitt County High School Principal Bob Jones says GEMA says the plans are tailored to each school. Jones says, "The fact we have geographic to figure in and demographics to of our school and logistics are all somewhat different that then make our school plan unique."

Jones says the most important thing is communication, especially between school resource officers and students. Students should feel comfortable talking to officers.
