This case study explores how Iran mandated annual school earthquake drills and raised public awareness within and beyond schools in order to reduce injury and death during earthquakes. This case study is part of a series of case studies documenting how countries have been developing and implementing Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) policies that address the three CSS pillars: safer learning facilities (pillar 1), school disaster management (pillar 2), and risk reduction and resilience education (pillar 3).
