Emergency Procedures


Edward B. Cole, Sr. Academy has always enjoyed the reputation of providing a safe learning environment for our students. Should an emergency or disaster situation ever arise in our area while school is in session, we want to assure you that the school has made preparations to respond effectively to such situations.

Scholars and staff practice emergency procedures regularly. Through our School Emergency Response Plan, we are prepared to protect the safety and welfare of students and employees, provide a safe and coordinated response to emergencies, protect the school’s facilities and property, and enable the school to restore normal conditions with minimal confusion in the shortest time possible.

We are asking for your help in providing a student emergency kit for each of your children.


The scholar emergency kit will remain in your child’s class in case of an emergency or natural disaster to be used as needed. Some of the items in the kits will provide comfort to your child during such an event while the rest of the items will provide for their basic needs. The kits will be returned to the student at the end of the year if they are not used. Student Emergency Kits need to be brought to school during the first week. EBC also provides a 3 day disaster kit to all students in staff should an emergency occurs.


 Each student at EBC is asked to bring a gallon size zip lock bag containing the following items:

1. Picture of Family

2. Letter from Family

3. Student’s Emergency Medical Information (asthma, diabetic, etc…)

4. One package of Sanitary Wipes

5. Various Size Band-Aids

6. One Water Bottle

7. A deck of cards or something small for entertainment purposes

8. Food with long shelf life (i.e. beef jerky, granola bars, canned fruit, etc…)

9. One Light Stick


At home you can help by discussing what to do in case of an emergency, a fire, or an earthquake. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school at 714-836-90233. Thank you for your help in these matters! Please return your child's kit to the classroom teacher during the first week of school.
