Emergency Planning & Violence Prevention

Crisis Management

  1. Become familiar with the areas you use. Before an incident occurs, know your evacuation route and where to take shelter depending on the emergency.

  2. Stay calm. Do not take unnecessary risks. Understand that you and others around you will be experiencing a variety of emotions.

  3. Offer assistance without putting yourself at risk.

  4. Be informed and have a plan for how you will respond in a crisis.
