SchoolsWhen natural disasters such as hurricanes approach, most schools are evacuated in plenty of time. Hold students in an assigned yard area, take a roll call and wait for further instructions. Once the disaster is over, dismiss students to go home only with a parent or other authorized adult. Every year emergencies take their toll on businesses and industry, both in lives and dollars.
The Comprehensive Risk Mitigation and Disaster Recovery Plan is a tool prepared by NMDC, AVCOG, KVCOG, and EMDC to guide businesses on how to create and maintain a comprehensive program. In an emergency situation, it is important to have a process in place for preparing, mitigating, responding, and recovery from a natural or man-made hazard event.
Important functions in managing emergencies include planning (although critical, it is not the only component). Help businesses fulfill their moral responsibility to protect employees and the community.
Enhance a company’s ability to recover from financial losses, regulatory fines, and damage to equipment or products, or business interruption.
Improve a company’s image and credibility with employees, customers, suppliers, and the community.
Consider what could happen as a result of loss of power, water damage, building collapse, etc.

Panic buttons will immediately place a call to 911 when pushed. “Once that happens, we send everybody we have to that school until we can determine what the exact cause of the threat is,” said Marietta police officer David Baldwin.

I think that anything that prepares teachers and students to deal with emergency situations is a good thing. We’ve had panic buttons at the place I work for at least a decade (well before I started there). The training materials were presented to ONEMI during a ceremony on Wednesday, December 11, 2013.
But other less predictable events can cause serious problems that require an immediate response. Parents of schoolchildren should stay informed about the school’s disaster preparedness plan.
That’s why any disaster preparation program requires a tremendous amount of planning. Students are screaming, alarms are ringing and it seems as if you’re surrounded by circumstances totally out of your control. If that is not possible, lock your classroom door and tell students to duck down under their desks and remain quiet. Training, conducting drills, testing, and coordinating with the community are also important functions. Banks have long been using panic buttons to alert police to potentially dangerous situations in progress.
According to a report by the Associated Press, once the button is pushed the schools go on lock-down with students locked inside their classrooms. They might be right, but with the upward trend in violence on campuses across the country, I can certainly understand the desire to have easy access to responding officers.
I might even go a step farther and advocate for safe rooms, but I haven’t put a lot of thought into that.

Businesses and industries can limit injuries and damages and return more quickly to normal operations if they plan ahead. If teachers ever face a horrifying situation like the one at Sandy Hook, why not make it as easy as possible for police to respond? Panic buttons are designed to be easily accessible and quick to use.
At least parents can rest assured that those responding to emergencies are trained police officers – not security guards (and in some cases, custodians) with guns.

If phones don't work, or some neighbourhoods aren't accessible, what will you do? Get household members together and prepare a household emergency plan.

It's good to give these topics some thought, and maybe make new plans, or change the plans we already have for the future.
