Lessons Learned From The Joplin Tornado

Authored by Zac Rantz
Contributions by Dr. Stephen Kleinsmith

On May 22, 2011, Joplin, Missouri, was changed forever by an EF5 tornado. The Joplin school district was hit hard by this event, but through the chaos, many lessons for schools can be learned. Looking back at the days, weeks, and months after the tornado, as well as other crisis events, this book asks questions and gives answers to help schools better prepare for a crisis.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will go to Joplin Schools to help with their recovery.
