Presented by the Institute for Childhood Preparedness, the goal of this session is to help early childhood programs prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters and emergencies.
The Institute for Childhood Preparedness designs their training course to meet the specific needs of early childhood professionals. They provider lectures, videos, and discussions to make sure educators are more prepared and empowered.
Educators will receive an overview of emergency preparedness procedures on topics such as weather, man-made hazards, chemicals, toxins, public health emergencies, evacuation and relocation, shelter in place, crisis communication, and family reunification. Educators will also learn how to create a detailed emergency response and recovery plan, how to implement and practice preparedness drills in an age-appropriate manner, and work together to ensure both educators and children are best prepared.
Effective April 1, 2021, educators must be present and visible on video camera for the entire class time.
No training dates are currently scheduled.
