Are You a First Responder?
Traditionally, we think of police, fire, and rescue persons as first responders. But in reality, when there is an emergency situation at school, the students, teachers, principals and staff are the “first responders.” The first few moments after an incident has occurred are crucial. The actions of those on the inside could make all the difference in the outcome. It’s important that all involved parties know how to respond in each situation, keeping First Things First. Are you a first responder?
