Drills Need to be Done Realistically and Well
The thing about security drills, in either school of business settings, is that they need to be taken seriously and performed as though they are real. That’s the way to minimize the consequences of any real, traumatic events. That ought to be obvious.
Yet there’s an Internet story from Michigan on schools there “cutting corners” on fire, lockdown and other drills that’s plain disturbing. Drills are tools for heading off disasters, but if they aren’t done regularly and realistically, they’re of little value. That’s something schools and businesses everywhere need to learn, and honor.
