Creating Resilient Organizations in the Face of Emergencies
This webinar will step supportive housing staff through a newly-created Emergency Preparedness Plan template developed by the Network and EAD Consultants that members can use to create their own agency/residence specific plans. Both the Residence Template and the Organization Template will be accessible via the Members Only portion of the Network website in the Emergency Prep forum. A second webinar in December will be created based on member input.
Focused Emergency Planning Webinar
Date: November 19, 2014
Time: 1 pm
This training is for any staff who are or will address evacuation planning for supportive housing organizations - one of the most critical planning areas to face our tenants and staff. The discussion will include: decision-making about evacuation, planning for short-term vs. long-term displacement, personal preparedness for staff and tenants, identifying alternate sites, roles and responsibilities and tenant issues and concerns. There will be a short amount of time for questions and answers; but the conversation will continue on the Network’s Emergency Preparedness Forum, accessible by password via the Members Only portion of our website. Those interested should speak to their supervisors and then register here. If you encounter any problems or have questions, please contact Wren Longno at email@example.com.
