Albany - If a crisis were to occur at your child's school, how would you find out? Imagine a tornado were headed toward your child's school, or there was a gas leak nearby, even a school shooting. What would happen?

At the Dougherty County School system, there's a plan in place to quickly lock down or evacuate students in emergency situations. Many local churches would serve as reunification points for parents and students.

Brenda Horton, Director of Public Relations says, "You have to have a plan in place.  In the world we live in today and if something were to happen and there was not a plan, it would just be chaos."

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency uses the Dougherty County School System's plan as a model for other school systems.
