GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Guilford County Schools safety administrator Greggory Slate updated the school board's safety committee Monday on the district's disaster preparedness.

Slate said its a complicated topic.

"It's not just students and teachers you're dealing with. It's first responders and firefighters and law enforcement all coming together to work together," Slate said.

The first week in March is Severe Weather Awareness Week in North Carolina.

There will be a statewide tornado drill Wednesday, March 6th.
