To provide quality service to the REAP members with integrity and respect, understanding the member is the priority.
Reflecting on the events earlier this past week, it’s hard to understand exactly what happened or why it happened. As public employees, it becomes so very easy to adopt a complacent mindset in our day to day activities.
The tragedy in San Bernardino could happen anywhere at anytime…and unfortunately, it does, on a daily basis. Visualize living in any war torn country across the globe…Could you imagine waking up every day wondering if today is the day? Many experts have shared their knowledge of how we should react in the event of an active shooter situation. A video created by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department may save your life and shows what steps should be taken in the event you find yourself in an active shooter situation. Although this video contains graphic content, EVERYONE should watch this video! Our world is changing and your ability to survive a similar situation will rely on your ability to change with it!
Most who were, or are, members of our military, have learned how to adapt to rapidly changing conditions that may have a profound effect on their life. Be prepared. Get the necessary training to protect your family, your coworkers and yourself! Have a plan and know what to do in the event of an emergency. It’s disturbing to think that these types of attacks may become the new normal.
As difficult as it will be to go on…we must. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families who lost a loved one, to those who were injured, and to our brothers and sisters working in San Bernardino County who will continue on…
