Introduction: Filling Up Your Tool Kit
In the fields of criminal justice and emergency management training you will almost constantly hear the phrase, “use this to fill up your tool kit,” by those conducting your training.
The theory behind the creation of a personal or professional tool kit is that you should keep a personal or professional knowledge or research database, library, or tool kit of the nationally approved and globally accepted practices relative to responding to a critical incident and mass casualty events no matter the cause stored in a safe location.
You may not have need of this information for years but, if and when the emergency occurs, all you will have to do is open your tool kit and proceed accordingly. We never know what the future holds for us or what we may be called upon to respond to, or what unexpected and active critical incident we may find ourselves in the middle of, but with a full tool kit, you can be the difference between control and effective response or chaos.
It is worth repeating the quote attributed to Edmund Burke (17291797), “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” Do not find yourself on the side of forgotten history. Choose instead to remember all of those seated in schools doing their school work until shots rang out; those seated in a theater ready to watch a movie when shots rang out; those shopping in a mall when shots rang out; those traveling and reporting to work when the planes struck the south and north towers of the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon. Remember and reflect on those who made the conscious choice to take action and force the aircraft they were aboard downward at 500 mph in to the ground in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
To be clear, we are not looking for you to be heroes, we are not asking that you place yourself or others in mortal danger, we are simply assisting you in filling up your tool kit so that if and when the time comes you can effectively, ethically, and professionally respond to your communities’ needs if and when the time presents itself.
