Aunt Natalie prepares Miranda for a crisis by conducting a midnight fire drill.
Despite the fact that it’s the middle of the night and Miranda is exhausted, Aunt Natalie is excited about the Internet of Things and smart watches. She begins planning the creation of a random crisis-generator app that could be installed on her niece’s phone. This way, Aunt Natalie could control it at any time from anywhere, thus ensuring that she can help keep Miranda safe and prepared.
Not surprisingly, Miranda is so not a fan of this idea. “Seriously? You know me, right? We have met. Do you honestly think I need an app on my phone that will randomly start a crisis?” In an effort to calm her down, Aunt Natalie tries to teach her about the challenges of disaster preparedness by regaling her with a story of how a group of legendary South African jazz musicians used their improvisational skills to help the different departments of a university collaborate more effectively to manage crises.
The episode concludes with SAP executives discussing how institutions of higher education cannot rely on the last disaster when preparing for the next one, as the next crisis is likely to be something unforeseen.
