Event description

Description

Individuals with medical, functional or access needs are particularly vulnerable to natural hazards. Factors such as physical limitations, mental ailments, and medication requirements are issues of concern for caregivers. These specific needs, amongst other considerations for natural hazards, must be addressed in preparedness plans for these at-risk individuals.

This course provides healthcare professionals, emergency medical services, and citizen/community volunteers involved with the care giving of individuals with medical, functional, or access needs with a basic understanding of natural hazards, risk, vulnerability and disaster preparedness. The course will enable participants to discuss best practices to prepare for the impacts of local natural hazards, identify methods of assisting care receivers to prepare for natural disasters and identify appropriate preparedness actions to take during a disaster.

Who Should Take this Course: Citizens/Community Volunteers, Emergency Management, EMS, Fire Service, Gov't Administration, Healthcare, Law Enforcement and General Public.
