Local non-profit leaders and community stakeholders are invited to attend a FREE “Lunch and Learn” workshop on Friday, September 6. This event, facilitated by the American Red Cross Capital Region, is directed toward community based organizations and aims to enhance their preparedness capacity for times of emergencies.
Commit to preparing by evaluating the emergency response of your organization, assessing risks, and implementing a response plan for your workplace. These proactive efforts can minimize losses, and increase resiliency following a disaster. In fact, without adequate planning and recovery measures, 15%-40% of businesses impacted by a disaster will never reopen.
Workshop attendees will receive information about such topics as Red Cross Ready, Cycle of preparedness, Ready Rating (business continuity), website tools and resources, and the other support services offered by the Red Cross.
Participants will develop an understanding of preparedness in the workplace:
Resources for readiness
Tools for planning and practicing emergency preparedness plans
Importance of helping your community be more resilient in times of emergencies
