Caring Through Crisis: Disaster Planning

Natural disasters can occur at any time, often without warning. During a natural disaster some people need to leave their homes for 3 to 7 days, if not longer. This session helps you prepare for natural disasters like bush fire, heatwaves, severe storm events, flooding and tsunamis.

Participant feedback: The session is 'strength focused and uplifting if one is feeling overwhelmed.’

The session will focus on:

  • Understanding your risks
  • Knowing what to do before, during and after a disaster
  • Knowing who can assist you, and
  • Having the tools and knowledge to plan ahead.

At the end of the session participants will receive a copy of the Caring through Crisis: Disaster Planning handbook, including tools to create an emergency care plan and evacuation plan.

You will require access to a computer with speakers (a microphone and video camera are a bonus). Training is delivered using the Zoom platform. Carers NSW will send you instructions about how you can join the session on confirmation of your registration.

Th​e duration of this workshop is 2 hours.
