    There’s a job opening available in my library in Springfield MA. We’d be thrilled to have someone so conscientious who takes safety of her patrons first!

    Someone who forces everyone out into their cars when the emergency in question is a tornado? That’s not putting the patrons first. I expect to be called before that decision is made, not after the staff member gets home and there are other people who can be called if I can’t be reached (and I usually can).

    First of all, that building is a framed wooden structure well over 100 years old with no basement. Second of all, in an emergency (and always) it’s safety first! Tornadoes were spotted in the area she put safety first ahead of protocol!!

    Tornados were spotted in the area so she threw everyone out into the storm without call anyone. The warning at 7:20 was take shelter now, not go outside now. A Stewart’s employee who did the same thing is getting dragged through the mud for it and he was following procedure.
