Hurricane season is upon us once again. The University of New Orleans Center for Hazards Assessment, Response & Technology (UNO-CHART) is offering a Train the Trainer Workshop for our Community Continuity and Resilience Workshop series. The Workshop will take place on July 1, 2014 at the University of New Orleans University Center from 9:00 am to 11:00 am in Room 206 (no more than two hours). There is no charge for this workshop.
At the end of the workshop, you will be familiar with the materials and best practice for conveying the materials to your own staff. Plus, you will take home a trainer’s manual and other related materials. You are receiving this information because you attended one of our workshops. Please feel free to pass this invitation on to another person in your office or field.
In this workshop, we will outline the issues of continuity and preparedness in the face of disaster, and train the workshop participants to give the workshop themselves in order to educate their colleagues and community members about continuity and resilience. The workshop curriculum includes the hazards in Louisiana, issues for Louisiana communities, community mapping, and making a continuity plan. The workshop participants will be provided with a copy of the workshop presentation, as well as a manual to aid in giving the presentation to others.
UNO-CHART is an applied social science hazards research center that collaborates with Louisiana communities in order to assist residents, community organizations, and officials in reducing risk to natural hazards. We also help communities gain a better understanding of their risks and what they can do to protect themselves from hazards.
As part of our mission, UNO-CHART is funded to implement outreach and education projects intended to inform citizens, business owners, non-profit organizations, and local officials about risks. For this project, entitled Continuity Planning for Community Organizations, UNO-CHART has, for the last two years, held regional workshops focusing on community resilience.
For the workshop, we will provide free parking and a continental breakfast. It is our pleasure to work with you to develop best practices for preparation and recovery from disasters. Please contact UNO-CHART at firstname.lastname@example.org or(504)280-5760 to let us know you plan to attend.
