In a recent school incident, a school principal sent out an evacuation alert because of reports of smoke coming from the kitchen. Upon evacuating the school, one of the teachers was unable to locate one of their students.
Already being well accustomed to drilling with DIR-S, the teacher used the REPORT tab in DIR-S to notify the rest of the school that the student was unaccounted for.
It was shortly discovered that since this student lived close to the school when the school evacuated, they simply decided to jog home.
Because this teacher was so quickly able to notify the rest of the school of this missing student, they were able to get the help of the rest of the other teachers, administrators, and responders in mere seconds.
The REPORT tab in DIR-S is meant to serve exactly as was depicted in this case study. It ensured that the name of the missing student did not get lost in the chat tab. Once the student was found, they were reported as “found,” and promptly returned to where their class was assembled.
