If, however, I want to use my graduate degree to work as much as possible (and I do), everything becomes trickier. That's why ...View full idea »

Emergency Evacuation

I was trained to assist folks who needed help in exiting the building and to ensure the area I was assigned was clear of people in the event of a workplace emergency. That changed this year. In our annual training we were told to exit the building like everyone else should an alarm sound and to let the police and fire rescue teams assist folks out of the building who required assistance.
