An Introduction to the FEMA Youth Preparedness Technical Assistance Center
To receive the webinar link, register at:
Across the country, parents, teachers, program leaders, youth advocates, and many others are taking steps to teach the youth of our nation how to be prepared for disasters and emergencies. Whether taught in classrooms, after-school programs, youth groups, or any other venue, preparedness skills can make a huge difference in children’s ability to keep themselves and others safe in the event of an emergency. Learning about preparedness can also help reduce children’s anxiety about potential disasters.
FEMA supports youth preparedness wherever it is taught, and developed a Technical Assistance Center to support those undertaking this important work. Join our webinar to learn about the tools, resources, and personalized assistance that are available from the FEMA Youth Preparedness Technical Assistance Center.
