Using Proper Approaches to Disaster Drills and Preparedness

The Disaster Podcast team is joined by Yedidya Benavie, NREMT. He comes on the show to discuss different ways to approach preparedness drills. He specifically compares the school active shooter drills with routine fire drills, saying neither should be a source of fear or dread.

We talk about when it’s a appropriate to do different levels of drills from tabletop roundtable drills all the way up to unannounced “reality” drills. When should we subject staff and teams to the various types of drills? We discuss in depth on the show.

Also on the show were Dr. Joe Holley, meteorologist Becky DePodwin, and co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis.
