It’s a Preparedness Training Bonanza!

Are you looking for ideas on activities you can undertake during National Preparedness Month? Check out these free online resources from FEMA. Below are clickable links to training that relates to preparedness and disaster response. These links will open in a new window. These courses are free and online so you can take them at your own pace.  The American Red Cross also offers a number of online or in-class courses that will help improve your families understanding and awareness of the recommended procedures for preparing for, responding to and recovering from a disaster. Visit the Red Cross to find out more information.

IS-909: Community Preparedness: Implementing Simple Activities for Everyone helps participants define preparedness, describe the role of individuals and households in preparedness, identify community preparedness principles, describe the purpose of community-based preparedness activities, identify the steps for planning and conducting a community-based preparedness program and identify resources for supporting community-based preparedness programs.

The Preparedness Activities for Communities Everywhere Toolkit  (available in English and Spanish) can educate individuals about simple steps they can take to become more prepared.
