Communication is a vital and often overlooked tool for emergency preparedness planning. After most emergencies and natural disasters, communication is identified as the single biggest area in need of improvement. During our communication during emergencies and disasters online training course, participants will learn the importance of having multiple forms of communication, how to be informed when an emergency or disaster strikes, how to make sure your program is prepared during a 911 call, and how to communicate internally and externally.
