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.

We hope you will join us in future trainings. It never hurts to be ready for disruptions
and emergencies at work . . . and at home!

Who should attend emergency readiness trainings: All employees are encouraged to attend our emergency readiness classes and webinars, especially those who may be called on to take part in drills and exercises that help us prepare for “the real thing.” While Introduction to the Building Proctor’s Role and Ready Colorado State are required for proctors, all of these classes are recommended for all employees who may be impacted by an emergency at work or at home. These trainings are coordinated and often led by Bob Chaffee, along with his team of professionals from a variety of departments at CSU.

About the Instructor:

Bob Chaffee portrait

As a retired law enforcement officer, Bob has the privilege of coordinating a very capable team of professionals from across campus in presenting readiness training and strategies to employees of Colorado State. It is his hope that this training is useful not only at work, but with family, church, school and travel that our employees may pursue.
