|Being prepared for an emergency allows us to organize ourselves and better structure the response we will have to it. Having material and knowledge in advance facilitates the effective actions that we will take later. However, it is also necessary to prepare ourselves emotionally. When disaster strikes, individuals are not only at risk of physical injury, but may also experience emotional and psychological “wounds.” Taking care of your mental health before an emergency will help you think clearly and react to urgent needs to protect yourself, and your family and community.
Who should attend: The whole community, first responders, OEMs, hospital staff and health care providers, local, state, and federal government.
