A Look At The Week
Here’s some thoughts from CrisisRisk regarding news from the past week. Be sure and click on the excerpt to read the entire post!
As of today, the election results are still not completely in. Joe Biden has been declared the president-elect and the Senate majority is still up for grabs. You will likely observe happy people who voted for Biden and less-than-happy people who voted for Trump. Add in the stress and uncertainty of the Covid virus and we have real stresses that may push some people of the edge. Thus, as we’ve urged many, many times, remember your Coordinator training, stay on the lookout and RECOGNIZE, IDENTIFY & ALERT as needed.
Following are some of the previous posts!

Election night is almost upon us. And, to say the least, this campaign season has been filled with extraordinarily high emotions. It’s a safe vote to say that whoever wins on November 3 or, until a winner is actually announced, many, many people are going to be very disappointed, unhappy and even angry. Thus, until all this finally settles down, as a Crisis Coordinator you are urged to be on the alert for emotions that are bubbling out of control. As always, err on the side of caution as you Recognize, Identify and Alert!

Unless you’ve been somewhere with no newspapers, radio, or Internet, then you already know that the past weeks have been about Covid, politics, demonstrations, violence and racial tensions. And, all of these create increased stress and anxiety on multiple levels. Most people find a way to manage stress without losing control. However, there are some who do lose control and this can result in actions fueled by anger and irrationality. As a Crisis Coordinator, always be on the lookout for signs of persons who may be on the verge of being pushed over the edge.
