Cal Poly execs welcome emergency training
San Luis Obispo, CA — March, 2016
It was a privilege to work with the enthusiastic and far-sighted Cabinet and executive staff at California Polytechnic Institute in San Luis Obispo to prepare and practice for serious emergency incidents that could arise. Communication Advantage partnered with Joe Costello, retired instructor at California Specialized Training Institute, to help prepare Cal Poly for the worst. The training focused on the major functions, skills and tasks that must be coordinated to respond quickly to an emergency, including the communications skills needed both among responders, and with the campus community and community at large. Using a modest (and fictional) hazardous materials incident for a practice exercise allowed the group to assess their readiness and begin to focus on next steps to be fully prepared.
