All Hazard Emergency Response
Large-scale emergency incidents and disasters can occur anywhere. When they do, being prepared ahead of time is one of the most important factors in a successful response. This workshop will provide the tools to enable administrators, students, faculty, and staff to manage a wide variety of emergency situations.
Effective Crisis Communication
The purpose of strategic crisis communication is to lay the groundwork necessary for organizations to respond effectively in a crisis or significant event. While communications delivered in daily situations is important, it is critical to understand the difference between daily communication practices and a crisis communication strategy.
Parenting in the Storm: Helping Our Kids Through the Pandemic
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have experienced financial hardships, fear and worry about an uncertain future and struggles to keep up with the pace of school and work. This workshop will address the stress, challenges and difficulties faced by parents and students during the pandemic and offer some practical advice and solutions.
Protecting the Flock: Safety and Security for Communities of Faith
More details at https://www.dprepsafety.com/safety. Join Retired ATF Senior Special Agent Nina Delgadillo and behavioral threat expert Dr. Brian Van Brunt as they share with you a layered security approach to keeping congregants safe. Houses of worship present a target to those planning violence against certain ideologies and communities and we have a duty to prepare to respond to these dangers.
Attending to potential safety and security concerns in the community, workplaces, and schools is the best way to get out ahead in front of violence, crime, assault, threat, and danger. This practical and engaging workshop brings the principles of situational awareness into the hands of participants, giving them the skills needed to stay safe.
