There are protocols and procedures to follow when there is a flood in a residence hall, a student is injured or a complaint is filed; and we must respond with a calm, level head. What we are usually not taught is that our role within each situation will be different, and the way we present ourselves during these challenging times greatly impacts everyone around us. We can practice and generalize what our reactions are going to be when something goes wrong, but unfortunately, nothing replaces the experience of a real actual crisis.
