Emergency School Safety Drill Information

Michigan Public Act 12 of 2014 modified the frequency and recording requirements for school safety drills and is effective July 1, 2014.

Under the requirements, any school that operates any grades K through 12 must conduct the following drills annually:

  • 5 fire drills per school year
    • 3 must be completed by December 1, 2020
    • There must be a "reasonable" interval between each drill.
  • 2 tornado drills per school year
    • At least 1 must be completed during the month of March 2021
  • 3 lockdown/shelter in place drills, drills in which the occupants are restricted to the interior of the building
    • At least 1 drill must be completed by December 1, 2020 and
    • At least 1 drill must be completed after January 1, 2021

At least one of the drills is required to be conducted during a lunch, recess, or at another time when a significant number of students are gathered but not in the classroom.

The Act also requires that school officials must document completed safety drills on the school's website within five days of completing the drill and maintain this information on the website for at least three years.  A copy of each completed school's drill is posted in the school folder below.
