Preparing for the Worst
When emergencies occur and organizations and communities are not ready to respond, the consequences can lead to harm of people, damage of property,y and a loss of ability to provide essential services. At its core, emergency preparedness planning’s goal is to help organizations quickly restore the essential services they offer. This workshop will review how to create an emergency response plan prior to emergencies that will help to minimize human and physical losses and restore normal operations. During an emergency, participants will learn how to organize effectively and quickly at a time of high stress so they are better prepared to respond. Participants will leave the workshop with a better understanding of how to implement their own emergency preparedness plan and team for their specific environment. This workshop is offered through Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute.
