The District of Columbia Homeland Security & Emergency Management Agency, is partnering with the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center at the University of Hawaii, and hosting two (2) Natural Disaster Awareness Training Sessions for community leaders and senior caregivers.
Each session is a 4-hour course designed to provide senior caregivers and community leaders with an understanding of the necessary plans and tools needed in planning for natural disasters. These sessions will also help participants to better understand, as well as to assist seniors and neighbors in a disaster event and process for recovery.
Participants will be better able to identify personnel best equipped to address response and recovery requirements in the case of an actual disaster. This course will assist community leaders to identify and to define properly the roles and responsibilities they may be expected to assume in the event of a natural disaster, as well as those of first responders and support personnel in the response and recovery phase.
The date and times for the training are:
Natural Disaster Awareness for Senior Caregivers March 22, 2016 from 9:00am – 1:00pm
Natural Disaster Awareness for Community Leaders March 22, 2016 from 1:00pm – 5:00pm
