Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

Offered through Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute

When organizations and communities are not ready to respond to an emergency, the consequences may include people getting hurt, damaged property, or the inability to provide essential services. At its core, the goal of emergency preparedness planning is to help organizations quickly restore the essential services they offer. This workshop will show participants how to create a proactive emergency response plan that will help minimize human and physical losses, and restore normal operations. A guide for how to organize effectively and quickly at a time of high stress so that groups are better prepared to respond is provided. Participants will leave the workshop with a better understanding of how to implement their own emergency preparedness plan and assemble an appropriate response team for their specific environment.
