Free School Safety Video Podcast on the Importance of Mental Simulation in Effective School Crisis Planning

The Safe Havens International Video crew has produced a free concise video podcast on the proven concept of mental simulation to help school employees practice and prepare for a wide range of school crisis situations.  Mental simulation has been utilized by law enforcement, military, emergency medical personnel as well as in the commercial aviation industry as a tool to improve human performance under life and death conditions for decades.  Safe Havens began offering training in mental simulation techniques to school personnel 8-10 years ago and released a training and evaluation toolkit – The First 30 Seconds for school based personnel earlier this year.  Two months later, we released a companion set designed for school bus drivers and support personnel.

Mental simulation for school safety enhancements is a powerful concept that is based on extensive research that can improve safety and emergency preparedness.
