Preparedness Training for Community-Based Organizations Available (follow the link below).

Web-based, self-guided training, and a downloadable instructor kit guides participants on how to identify risks, locate resources, and take preparedness actions. When Community-Based Organizations, such as food pantries, daycares, and non-profits, are unable to sustain operations during an emergency incident, individuals who rely on them are exponentially impacted. These resources are designed to empower these organizations to better prepare for incidents. The training provides an overview of the 10 preparedness actions and creates a path forward for organizations to develop their own disaster response plan.
