The mission of Folsom Cordova Unified School District's Risk Management Program is to establish a safe environment for our students, staff, and community while supporting the District's commitment to providing excellence in educational programs. The main objectives are to apply the most effective use of resources, minimize exposure to loss, and maintain compliance with policies, procedures, regulations, and laws.
Plan long trips carefully, listening to the radio or television for the latest weather forecasts and road conditions. If bad weather is forecast, drive only if absolutely necessary.
Emergency Kit for the Car
In case you are stranded, keep an emergency supply kit in your car with the addition of these automobile extras:
Flares or reflective triangle
Car cell phone charger
Cat litter or sand for better tire traction
Prepare Your Vehicle for Emergencies
Have a mechanic check the following on your vehicle prior to an emergency:
Battery and ignition system
Fuel and air filters
Heater and defroster
Lights and flashing hazard lights
Windshield wiper equipment and washer fluid level
Vehicle Safety Tips
- Keep your gas tank full in case of evacuation or power outages. A full tank will also keep the fuel line from freezing
- Install good winter tires and ensure they have adequate tread or any jurisdiction-required chains or studs
- Do not drive through flooded areas. Six inches of water can cause a vehicle to lose control or possibly stall. A foot of water will float many cars.
- Be aware of areas where floodwaters have receded. Roads may have weakened and could collapse under the weight of a car.
- If a power line falls on your car you are at risk of electrical shock, stay inside until a trained person removes the wire.
- If there is an explosion or other factor that makes it difficult to control the vehicle, pull over, stop the car and set the parking brake.
- If the emergency could impact the physical stability of the roadway avoid overpasses, bridges, power lines, signs and other hazards.
