I’ve been tasked with running sessions of emergency drills next week.  We’re training our teaching assistants in how to respond to the most common things that may happen in an undergraduate teaching laboratory – such as fires, chemical exposures, cuts, burns, fainting, etc.  I’m not an expert in this and need to make sure that I deliver the correct information and a quality experience for the assistants.  Do you know of any resources that can help me prepare for conducting these drills?


Thank you,
