When COVID19 impacted our campus, we asked what benefit our employees received from Emergency Readiness trainings. Here are some responses:
When asked about updating emergency plans an employee says, I did them because I took these classes!
Another commented about feeling ready by: Seeing through the craziness and knowing what to really ask.
Other comments include: …emergency training prepped me to go through my previously-compiled checklist to shut down my offices so that I could feel assured that I had done what needed to be done and wouldn’t wake up in a panic in the middle of the night thinking I’d forgot something.
Being able to stay calm and help others stay calm goes a long way. When a
supervisor stays in the fear zone employees might also follow and slow any
progress toward resolution.
