    The EMT works with local campuses and police and fire departments to prepare BISD to deal with situations that could impact one or all BISD campuses.

    Each year, the EMT conducts tabletop drills to simulate various emergency situations. In addition, they work with campus administrators to conduct similar drills along with campus observations and training to assist in preparations for an emergency situation.

    BISD's Emergency Response Team believes it is important to prepare. By preparing, the district has laid the foundation to better understand how people will function and react in various situations.
