Personal Preparedness

Description:

Disasters can strike anyone, anytime, and anywhere. Community volunteers, hospital workers, and public health staff members may be called on to help with a community response to a disaster. In order to respond effectively in such an emergency, these workers must have plans in place to be sure their families, other dependents, pets, etc. are cared for. This course provides a step-by-step process for developing a family disaster plan and a personal emergency plan.

This course is intended for anyone who might be called to respond to an emergency that might keep them away from home for a period of time. This would include people working in public health or healthcare as well as volunteers such as members of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) or Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).
