According to the new guidelines, your first recommended course of action is to evacuate. FEMA’s new guidelines are very explicit about this: “If it is safe to do so…. The first course of action that should be taken is to run out of the building and far away until you are in a safe location.” (P. 64). Sounds pretty simple – yet what a change from what we’ve been training school staffs to do. Rapid evacuation raises a lot of questions that need to be answered: “How will I know when it is safe to do so?” “Where should I go?” “How will I keep track of my students?”. These questions and many more are answered in lockdown enhancement training.
