Reviews of Moving Beyond Duck, Cover and Hold On: Emergency Preparedness Guidebook for School Volunteers, Parents and PTAs by Ellen Rony

Libby Colman reviewed on Jan. 21, 2013

Consider how much worse things could have been at Sandy Hook Elementary School if a teacher had not been clear headed enough to sequester her class in a closet, and if the children had not had the discipline to huddle in silence until danger passed. As author Ellen Rony knows well, disaster preparedness training and regular drills may not prevent bad things from happening, but they save lives and speed the recovery of survivors. This guidebook uses clear writing, delightful line drawings, and real-life scenarios to help parents and school administrators organize an effective emergency preparedness program.
