Disaster Ready - Emergency Preparedness for First Responders and Their Families

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 - 12:30pm to 1:25pm

Department of Police Services, 2nd Floor Training Room

First responders are essential to the success of emergency operations – whether they are saving lives, protecting property, or providing essential services.  Families of first responders may have to survive without their responder’s input on important decisions in the immediate aftermath of an emergency.  Having a plan and knowing your family is prepared to cope in an emergency or disaster enables first responders to focus on the critical missions that support their community. An overview of emergency preparedness action steps will be discussed (communications, emergency kits, financial prep) in addition to identifying signs of critical incident stress and related response measures. Topics discussed  applicable to military families with deployed service members as well.
