Going to resurrect this thread, with a continuation question.
Would you rather have good quality drills were you learn something, or just go through the steps in pure show?
There are a lot of topics that are required to be covered monthly, quarterly, and annually that don’t leave much time for “bread and butter” fire drills. Just a fact of the job that we are “all hazard” responders. We are the cops, fire, EMS, Hazmat, etc for the ships (plus have worries that donut munchers never dreamed of… like sinking.)
As I’m writing this, I’m thinking about all those other drills. How many times do we do the same thing or hear the same instruction every quarter. What about doing things differently? What about trying to put on your survival suit blindfolded (power’s out and its night-pretty plausible situation) as an example.
Basicly, do you like your drills plain vanilla or do you like some flavor? or do you like to go all out and get the cherry and sprinkles on top?
