The Department of Public Instruction, in consultation with the Department of Public Safety through the North Carolina Center for Safer Schools, may develop and adopt policies on the placement of school crisis kits in schools and on the contents of those kits. The kits should include, at a minimum, basic first-aid supplies, communications devices, and other items recommended by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
The principal of each school, in coordination with the law enforcement agencies that are part of the local board of education's emergency response plan, may place one or more crisis kits at appropriate locations in the school. (2013-360, s. 8.42.)
