This course covers basic individual and family emergency preparedness, and focuses on ‘shelter at home’ level threats. Using risk analysis methodologies in reality based scenarios, trainees are not only educated on an emergency preparedness mindset, but more importantly on the critical thinking processes necessary to instill mental adaptability and resource versatility.

From this approach, real actions, real contingencies, and real inventories are developed to help the family in real situations. Not just hypothetical situations, the critical thinking approach to evaluating risk is instilled so each trainee can evaluate their own situation and their emergency preparations are customized to their needs.

All this is accomplished through a study of threat assessment and risk analysis to identify threat priorities as well as threat commonalities, so that time, money, and training can be spent where it will have the most benefit.
