To Check Is One Of The Most Important Steps

To Check Is One Of The Most Important Steps

What is the 1 thing to think about

When faced with an emergency?

Is your response to run around and shout,

Because you're too frantic to handle things practically? 


You may think you will not be in this position,

As the probability is too low,

But realize there'll come a time when you'll be put in,

The very situation you never thought you'd know about. 


And if you don't want to seem,

Like you are unable to take command,

Then think carefully about this theme,

So should this time arise you'll have a plan.


First things first when coming upon a scene,

You must take in every detail around you,

Otherwise, you can not properly glean,

What it is that you can and should do. 


There was a hospital that was struck by a storm,

which had left them all without power,

The electrician who came to fix it as per the norm,

Had not been seen by any for more than an hour. 


One doctor took it upon himself to go and check,

On the man working below,

When he'd enter the area he did detect,

That no sign of life from that man did show 


So what decision did that physician make?

Of course, he chose to come to that man's aid,

But there is an action he did not take,

And in the end, an unfortunate price he paid


Two of his colleagues came 1 after another

But their reactions differed by a fraction,

One came in, saw what occurred to the other,

And as the doctor before took the same action


Finally, her partner came to find where she'd gotten to,

And while his reaction to them was the same,

There was something different he chose to do,

For he took in not just that one frame 


Of those three on the ground,

Taking notice of the water and the wires at first glance

He then understood why they couldn't be found.

Then he chose to help so he could take the chance.


That one extra action that the doctor took,

Was a demonstration that proved quite vital,

For though the situation on his nerves shook,

It was him who had succeeded in that trial 


For while others rushed in without a thought,

Worried though he was he chose to stop to see,

What it was he had got,

And that's why such an outcome he could guarantee 


This is why you must think before you do,

As taking action means nothing in the end,

If you are not willing to take in all about you,

That's why this message I chose to send this.
