Learn how to be prepared for an emergency

July 8, 2012 by  

The Whole Community Approach to Preparedness and Resilience Workshop will take place at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab from August 6 to 7. This is a free workshop for public, private, and civic organizations where breakfast and lunch will be served on both days.

Those who attend the workshop will learn strategies on how their business can be prepared for any emergency and help the community rebuild after a major catastrophe. Topics of the workshop include how a business can continue after an emergency, how they can be prepared for any disaster, how to use social media, which volunteer organizations can help in an emergency, information sharing between government and private sector companies, how to support rural communities, and education about what types of emergencies can crop up. The workshop will also give those interested in disaster preparation the chance to network with like-minded individuals.

It would be no surprise if those who attend receive printed material to give them a reference point and help them prepare for emergencies. No doubt Laurel printing companies will be providing items such as brochures, pamphlets, and flyers to those who attend. Companies can also pass on what they have learned to their employees by posting any received information at their place of business. Flyers are probably the most suitable choice of marketing item for providing short information on what to do immediately. Brochures can give a more detailed description of what to do and what supplies people need to put in their disaster preparedness kits.
