Course Description

The Disaster Preparedness and Survival course is designed to prepare individuals and families how to prepare for, survive, and recover from a disaster.  When facing a disaster our choice often comes down to stay at home or evacuate.  In this course participants will learn the logic behind the decision to evacuate or shelter in place and what to do once they make it. This course follows a “me, we, they” approach to prepare participants to care for themselves, their families, and their communities before, during, and after a disaster. Through a combination of facilitated discussions and hands-on activities based on real-life scenarios, the instructors will demonstrate how planning, preparedness, and responsible actions may increase the chances of both surviving a disaster and recovering from it more quickly.
