Wildfire season is upon us, while for some it's always present.
Currently living in an area prone to wildfires and being one who's responsible for the response and management of several large-scale wildfires in Southern California during the last ten years of my 34-year law enforcement career, I'm well aware of the impacts on our communities, schools, and businesses. As customers of CrisisGo and the center point of contact for many families, you're uniquely positioned to impact a large number of people positively. Here's what you need to know regarding wildfires as well as the other potential emergencies you are likely to encounter in your region:
How can CrisisGo help you respond to this type of emergency?
While we have discussed the school being the central point of contact for trusted information for most of your families, the culture of your schools will likely determine who those families contact when they need information: many cannot, or will not, differentiate between everyday communications and emergency information.
It will be up to you to communicate with the emergency management agency to get the most up-to-date information and make sure you pass that information on to your families. If they don't get the information from you, they will call you for it. Fear and Panic are monsters that need to be fed, and good information is the only food that will satisfy these monsters.
Here are a couple of tips to get the information they need:
Conduct an After-Action Review of each and every event: drill and actual emergency. This will help you improve your process(es) for when the next emergency strikes. Stay ready, stay safe.
Please reach out to your CrisisGo Account Manager if you have any questions or need any further assistance.
