Metro to Offer Free Disaster Preparedness Training To Community Leaders

What would you do if there were a large-scale disaster?

That is a question that Metro wants community leaders to know how to answer. On Saturday, June 26, 2010, Metro and the National Sheriff's Association (NSA) are offering free disaster preparedness training to community leaders.

The program is part of the NSA's All-Hazards Homeland Security Initiative. The all-day event will include a series of activities to engage participants in creating collaborative partnerships that can assist them in times of crisis. Training will include information about disaster kits, community resource databases, crisis response, and terrorism awareness. This training is for people NOT already trained as a first responder.

Participants will include neighborhood watch captains, church leaders, civic group leaders, Metro volunteers, and more. At this time there are only a few seats left. Reservations are required. No walk-ins will be accepted.

All Hazards Training
