Organizations Preparing for Emergency Needs (OPEN) Part 1
Please join the Region 2 and Region 1 National Preparedness Divisions for a webinar on Organizations Preparing for Emergency Needs (OPEN). Businesses that are unable to sustain operations during an emergency incident exponentially impact individuals and the community who rely on them. The Organizations Preparing for Emergency Needs (OPEN) program offers a ten-step action plan for essential community economic and social resilience.
This webinar will review the first five steps of the action plan and explain how organizations can use OPEN to identify risks, locate resources, and consider immediate preparedness actions.
Who should attend: Community-Based Organizations, Faith-based and non-profit organizations, Emergency Managers, Institutes of Higher Education
Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division in partnership with Americares for a webinar on Psychological First Aid. A disaster, emergency, or terrorist event can affect people on many levels. After a traumatic event, survivors are in a state of acute stress and may experience physical, psychological, behavioral, and spiritual reactions. The rapid intervention of a professional, during the first hours after the event occurred, is essential to help victims manage their feelings and protect their physical and mental health.
