Early childhood professionals are the first educators of emergency preparedness for our children. Children arrive at elementary school already knowing how to behave during severe weather, fires, and a host of other emergencies - thanks to the work that early childhood professionals do each day. This training will focus on how to conduct meaningful drills in the early childhood environment. We will discuss the nuances of drills, why conducting drills is important, how to conduct active shooter drills in an age-appropriate manner, and how to best include individuals with developmental disabilities into drills. Participants will learn through a mix of slides, graphics, videos, and real-world scenarios.
