Practice makes perfect (or at least better…)
Case Western Reserve University recently staged a mock emergency and subsequent response drill (read about it here). It reminded me that no matter how good our written plans are, we don’t know how they will play out until we give them a test-drive. Even if we can’t manage a drill as extensive as CWRU’s, we can get people together to run through a tabletop drill, or just stage an event for our own staff without involving the community of responders. Something to think about during the break between semesters for those of us in academic settings….
