FOR ANY SITUATION
One of the most exciting lessons we share with faculty at staff at schools around the country is what we call a basic at-a-glance. When done correctly, an At-A-Glance review is an opportunity for everyone to understand and appreciate the critical steps involved in the first minutes of an emergency. What’s more, an At-A-Glance review is in our humble-ish opinion, the foundation of an effective emergency response program. This is geared towards those in earthquake territory - but the gist remains for everyone. You must convey the basic steps or “default response” that you expect your community to take during every emergency.
