Free training for IHSS providers on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from climate-related emergencies.
- Earn a $536 stipend upon graduating!
- 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
Note: We currently do not have classes on schedule.
