Emergencies happen. They are as much a fact of life as pumpkin pie is at Thanksgiving. However, many people “freak out” or panic when an emergency occurs, becoming overwhelmed by the whole situation. Global Safety specializes in equipping schools, offices, and nonprofits in the greater Los Angeles area with the tools they need to avoid the “freak out” response. From Beverly Hills to Santa Barbara, we’ll help you and your staff face emergencies. Below, we’ll briefly touch on the benefits of emergency response training. Contact us today!
TOP 3 BENEFITS OF EMERGENCY RESPONSE TRAINING
- Safety. When emotions are flying, panic can ensue, which can be contagious. And when panic ensues, it’s every person for himself or herself. When an emergency situation arises, it’s paramount to remain calm and collected, especially if you’re a leader in your company, or you’re the teacher for a group of students. When you are calm, the odds of you making the right decisions and saving lives increases dramatically. Furthermore, when you invest in emergency response training, you are sending a message to your employees and patrons that you care about them and their safety. You also send a message that workplace violence will not be tolerated.
- Emergency plan. When emergencies arise and emotions are high, having a plan in place is soothing in and of itself. As humans, we are creatures of habit, and when you have an emergency evacuation plan or a fire evacuation plan in place, muscle memory will take over and you’ll know what to do.
- Standardize response time. In emergencies, it’s essential to have everyone in your organization or school on the same page in terms of procedures. This is especially important in the event of an evacuation. Having groups of people scattered about without a meetup/check in plan in place can lead to confusion and frankly chaos. Furthermore, first responders need to know if anyone is missing, especially in the event of a fire.
Hopefully, your organization or school will never need to utilize an emergency response plan. However, you need emergency procedures in place in case one does happen.
