Preparing for the unexpected, such as making a READY Kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or human-caused emergency. However, there are important differences among disasters that will affect the decisions you make and the actions you take. Some natural disasters are easily predicted, others happen with little or no warning. Planning what to do in advance is an important part of being ready.
This two-hour course will cover:
Roles in Emergency Management and disaster response
Planning considerations for individuals, families and neighborhoods
Shelter-in-place vs. evacuation
Hazards within the North Central Region
Resources and opportunities to learn more
This course is part of the READYColorado project funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security program known as the Denver Urban Areas Security Initiative.
