Sheltering Indoors in Educational Institutions
The permanent address of the publication is:

The guide focuses on shelter-in-place exercises, the effectiveness of which is improved by means of good planning. One of the key tasks of educational institutions is to identify, analyse and treat the risks that can threaten its operations and to decide what kind of risks the educational institution considers so likely that it is important to practice for them. The exercises need to be attended by the whole educational institute community: the staff, pupils or students and other stakeholders. In a true emergency, every member of the educational institute community must know how to collaborate with others. Safety is not truly under control until the entire educational institution community practices it together by planning, training and taking action in a true emergency.
