Overview

Join us as the Community Preparedness Webinar Series presents an important look at what it takes to establish a youth preparedness program in your community. Emergencies can happen at any time and often without warning. While emergency personnel do their best to quickly respond to emergencies, it could take time for them to arrive on the scene. The best way to help citizens maintain safety during an emergency is to ensure they’re prepared in advance to sustain themselves and their families for the first 72 hours after a disaster strikes.  Leading educators and scholars in the field of preparedness education believe that children are the best envoys to bring this message home to their families.

Establishing a youth preparedness program in your community may seem like a daunting task, but this webinar will provide you with many of the resources available that can help your organization implement an effective program.

The youth of America can play a vital role when it comes to preparedness. The youth team at FEMA predicates itself on some core principles:

  • Children are positive influencers
  • Young people can become preparedness examples to their families and those around them
  • Students who have preparedness training are more confident during an actual emergency

This webinar will provide participants with information on how their organization can integrate preparedness education into their program offerings. You will hear expertise based on the experiences of those who have developed and delivered some of the most successful youth preparedness programs across the country. In discussing their programs, the following will be addressed:

  • Getting started and engaging partners
  • Identifying curriculum
  • Iimplementing program
  • Promoting program
  • Sustainment and evaluation

All participants will receive a draft of a “how to” guide for implementing preparedness programs as well as a catalogue of youth preparedness resources.
