I got defib training which essentially amounted to ‘open it up and it’ll give you instructions’

Got a half day’s training on this in September. V. exciting.

got a first aid qualification but not designated. it’s never come up, so.

In an actual fire, I would

  • Exit the building in a calm and orderly fashion
  • Out of my way, kindling

got the badge in scouts. Not sure if that carries over here?

I’d say it depends on how long ago this was but probably yes

Definitely think my phone is worth more to me thatn 99% of my colleagues

Well they probably can’t even unlock it and don’t know half the contacts, so I’d agree

The one time there was an actual fire/explosion I had the wherewithal to shout at the shocked people to stop standing there and get out of building, but not enough to actually check if they were moving before hoofing it out the emergency exit myself. With my phone, though.

I asked an injured person if they were ok, too! They were not.

Did you give them the number for 999?

In my previous job as the PA to the Director of Marketing (unofficial so I didn’t have a PA’s salary) my boss tried to get me to do our business continuity plan. I had a go, organised some meetings etc but I didn’t really have a clue. Had to tell my boss several times that this was pretty above my pay grade. I literally couldn’t do it as I didn’t have the training /resources /in depth knowledge the business.
