The recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, CT demonstrated, if nothing else, the urgent need for every business, every school, and every organization to have an emergency plan to use in dire situations. This is different from the COOPs (continuity of operations plans) and disaster preparedness plans we have been discussing on this blog for the last several months. While the emergency plan may be a requirement for schools, it’s not one for many businesses and nonprofit organizations. After the frightening experience of the Sandy Hook school shooting, we think it’s imperative for businesses and organizations of every size and type to develop a workplace emergency plan that is specific to their organization type, and even their building.
It’s imperative for every organization to drill and practice on these different emergencies, and every new employee should learn these procedures as soon as possible.
