  • Earn a $536 stipend upon graduating!
  • Training begins mid July 2022
  • Classes held online via Zoom, once a week for six weeks

This specialized training will expand caregivers’ skills in their roles as essential workers and first responders during emergencies and climate-driven disasters (extreme heat, wildfires, power outages, smoke and ozone pollution) as well as non-climate related disasters (earthquake, pandemics, and unsafe drinking water).

Caregivers will learn:

  • Impact of climate change on caregivers and the people they care for
  • Emergency planning (emergency kits, local resources)
  • First aid and CPR/AED
  • Evacuating and sheltering
  • Emergency communication
  • Stress management and disaster psychology

Space is limited. If you are interested in this free training, please answer the following questions to check your eligibility.
