Situation Report: Practice With a Purpose

Practice with a Purpose By Thom Bolsch and Ron Mullins   One topic we’ve discussed in a number of our articles is practice.  If we don’t practice to respond to an incident; we will not be able to effectively react to an incident.  In any emergency situation, we will fall back to how we were trained.  If we have not trained, we could freeze or panic; not the best of responses.
