This class has been designed to help you learn how to protect yourself and your family against all types of hazards. The focus of this 1 ½ hours class is on how to develop, practice, and maintain emergency plans that reflect what must be done before, during, and after a disaster to protect you and your property.

Included is information on:

  • Different Disasters: You will learn about Natural disasters like hurricanes, tornados, flooding, wildfires and earthquakes, etc. and Manmade disasters are also discussed.
  • How to develop a Family Disaster Plan: Having a written disaster plan allows you to know exactly what to do in the event of a disaster ahead of time, so all you have to do is execute your plan which reduces fear and stress.
  • How to assemble a disaster supplies kit: This should contain the food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity for individuals and their families to survive following a disaster for 72 hours or longer in the event you must rely on your own resources.
  • How to recover from a disaster: You will learn how to recover from a disaster safely and how to help others during this phase of a disaster.
