In the event of a disaster, it is important that community organizations and businesses can continue to operate. This is especially true for those organizations who provide essential services to community members, as many small organizations and businesses do. This session explores the concept of Continuity of Operations Planning in order to be prepared in case of such an event. We will look at elements of the plan and planning process, including community partnerships for mutual aid and support; staff and volunteer safety and accountability; and back filling of positions vacated by disaster response or other activities.
Being deployed for a disaster response operation can be a very exciting and rewarding experience. This training will help individuals prepare for their deployment so that they can stay safe, healthy, and comfortable while working in sometimes stressful and unpredictable circumstances. Topics will include packing for your deployment; Disaster 101 (an overview of how disaster response works); terminology you may hear while deployed; taking care of yourself; and suggestions for having the best experience you can.
