This year, we took extra caution to review and discuss emergency plans for our dance studios. It is everyone’s hope that the plans will never be used, but it is important to be alert, aware, and mindful of certain possibilities. When everyone is on the same page, it is easier to be calm, alert, and proactive during a time of crisis.
Elements of Preparedness Include:
- Fire Plans/Exit Strategy
- Hurricane/Tornado Safety Strategy
- Active Shooter/Intruder Situation
Within the differing scenarios, it is also important for staff to understand attendance taking procedures and making sure their students are present and safe.
