Management training teaches students what to do in case of emergencies

Lt. Beverly Pettrey of the Cleveland State Police Department explained to students and faculty what to do before an emergency happens in a workshop about emergency management awareness Thursday, April 27.

Pettrey, who is in charge of the Office of Emergency Management, also discussed emergency procedures handbook training.

“Our job is to ensure that the university is prepared for emergencies or disasters,” Pettrey said. “The objective of this training workshop is to describe the four phases of emergency management.”

Those four phases are mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. Mitigation is the prevention of future emergencies, preparedness is preparing to handle an emergency, response is responding safely to an emergency and recovery is recovering from an emergency.

One other topic that came up in the workshop was the responsibility of state government, which is to assist by reviewing plans and providing guidance to the areas that need it.

As the head of the Office of Emergency Management, Pettrey acts as a liaison between the city and the state when emergencies do occur.
