Tri-Co grants funds to school’s emergency preparedness
Members of the Tri-Co Community Foundation recently presented Saint Paul Lutheran High School, in Concordia, with a grant to be used toward the school’s emergency preparedness development plan. Specifically, the money will be used to purchase radio communication equipment so faculty and staff are better able to communicate during emergency situations. The SPLHS campus is composed of nine buildings that receive regular use. The purchase and use of communication radios and a centralized panic button is expected to greatly enhance the ability of employees on campus to quickly alert and respond to emergencies.
