Emergency Preparedness and Caregiver Resiliency

Free training for nursing home workers on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from climate-related emergencies

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 nursing home workers and the people they care for
  • Emergency planning (emergency kits, local resources)
  • Evacuating and sheltering
  • Emergency communication
  • Stress management and disaster psychology

Upon completion of all program requirements, each student will be eligible to receive a $546.50 stipend!

Classes will be held online via Zoom, once a week for six weeks. Space is limited. If you are interested in this free training, please contact our Field Coordinator.
