Disaster Preparedness 101: Families Prepare and Empower Themselves to Persevere Through Traumatic Events and Unexpected Disaster
February 28, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Presented by Cynthia Cullinane, Regional Parent Support Coordinator
When disaster strikes will you be ready? Flooding, blizzards, power outages and intense storms are common disasters in Maine. This workshop focuses on the reactions and needs of children and adolescents in times of unexpected disaster. Participants will learn how to engage their communities and emergency teams to effectively respond to the unique health and well-being needs of their children and youth. Families will begin to plan and prepare for an emergency evacuation and learn strategies to make the unforeseen event more bearable and less traumatic.
