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 K-12 school must conduct the following drills annually:

  • Five fire drills per school year with a reasonable interval between each drill. Three must be completed by December 1.
  • Two tornado drills per school year. At least one must be completed during the month of March.
  • Three lockdown/shelter-in-place drills, where the occupants are restricted to the interior of the building. At least one drill must be completed before December 1, and another completed after January 1.

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 school officials to 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.
