This webinar will focus on the frequency and management of drills for evacuation, shelter in place, intruder, and bad weather. We will review the best practices of actively utilizing safety checklist for all locations and all areas of your charter sites. How secure are your sites? Do you actively test they system – purposely have someone attempt to breach your physical security? The webinar will cover policies and procedures to assist in the creation of a safe physical environment. Even in the safest and most secure situations, incidents and accidents will still occur.
