All-Hazards Training for School Nurses

Description:

Those responsible for the education and health of our children also have a major role in protecting children from the effects of actual and perceived acts of terrorism and other hazards affecting our environment. Those attending this program will be provided with information, concepts and skills relevant to the safety of school children regarding issues that have become an integral part of our society, especially since the tragic events of September 11, 2001 and the hurricanes affecting Florida. This training program is currently available by live presentation only.


At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the types of bioterrorism and weapons of mass destruction (BWMD) and accidental and natural disasters that have emerged as threats to our society.
  • Define their role in protecting children, teachers, and staff in the schools from actual or perceived threats of BWMD as well as accidental and natural disasters (e.g., hurricanes).
  • Assist in the development of a multidisciplinary curriculum to protect children, faculty, and staff in the event of an act of bioterrorism and weapons of mass destruction as well as natural and accidental disasters affecting schools.
  • Develop and implement a plan of communication in schools appropriate to threats of BWMD as well as accidental and natural disasters for school staff, children, and parents.
