Welcome to our latest podcast episode where we discuss the importance of scenario-based training for staff to improve their situational awareness and critical thinking skills during a crisis. We delve into the three primary delivery mechanisms for training and assessing staff, namely drills, tabletop exercises, and full-scale exercises, and explore the benefits and drawbacks of each methodology. We also provide a ten-step process for initiating drills, including the need to develop a scenario to base the drill on, and highlight the five emergency protective actions of the Standard Response Protocols (SRP) that staff should execute during a crisis. Tune in to learn how to reduce the reactionary gap and progress quickly through the three stages of disaster response for better chances of survival in a crisis situation.
