Five Resources to Help You Prepare for a Crisis
In the April issue of Parks & Recreation, we ran a feature on preparing park and recreation agencies for human threats. Danielle Taylor, associate editor explains that this article had been in the works for several months and was originally focused solely on active-shooter situations, but just before the issue went to print, the bombings at the Boston Marathon occurred. In the wake of this tragedy at an event coordinated in part by a major parks and recreation department, she quickly rethought the article and broadened the focus to other sorts of incidents that can occur in parks. In this blog post, Danielle smartly points out that park and recreation professionals must prepare for everything in an ever-changing world and offers five resources that agencies can use to help formulate plans and be prepared.
