Once you have completed your emergency plan, your institution can now focus on staff training for your specific plan. Training will include both internal training for all staff, and training for some staff within the community. The latter is both an opportunity to integrate your emergency plan into other community responses, and to get to know emergency responders before the emergency. Webinars in this module will look at different kinds of training opportunities available for your staff, both institution and community emergency training. You wil also be able to view practical exercises you can use to train staff for emergency situations.
