Judi Peterson, secretary at ROJH, is part of the Contact and Communication team during the mock disaster drill. Peterson discussed her thoughts about the drill with “RO: In the Know.”

Q: What is your opinion on the mock disaster drill?

A: I think that it’s a good way to practice doing what we’ve been taught for a long time. We’ve been doing good at our drills and just more practice makes the better.

Q: What were your thoughts when you were selected for the Contact and Communication team?

A: I think that it’s a pretty important job, just like all the other jobs that everyone else has.

Q: Why do you think you were selected for that role?

A: I think it’s the fact that I work with all the student records, and I can keep up with who’s there.

Q: How have you prepared for this team?

A: Well, we have had several meetings with Officer [Scott] Lindsey and other administrators. Also, the practices for our drills help us figure out what to do and how to do it.

Q: What do you think will be your greatest strengths as a team member?

A: They would most likely be that I have an ability to not freak out and follow directions.

Q: What are you nervous about for the mock disaster?

A: Maybe that something will go wrong, a mistake will be made,  or it’ll be confusing.

Q: How do you think the drill will benefit students?

A: It’ll show the students that the school is ready to take care of them and that if an emergency does happen, there is already a plan.

Q: How do you think the drill will go?

A: It’ll go smoothly; our students are really well-behaved and have good manners.

Q: Is there anything else I should know?

A: I’m glad that the Red Oak district goes through this.
