- Date & Times
- Oct 13, 2020 from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM; Oct 14, 2020 from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
This is a planning and management-level course. This course will assist in preparing communities to meet the assistance and safety needs of older adults, and people with access and functional needs during a crisis event in rural and tribal communities using an approach with the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Whole Community initiative. Due to the expected diverse student population, general information regarding crisis planning and response (incident command system (ICS), National Incident Management System (NIMS), etc.) will be discussed, flowing into a narrower discussion regarding the needs and care issues of older adults. Included in the discussion are short- and long-term care, pet care, medication, and the need for durable medical equipment and healthcare. The issue of individuals from assisted-living and nursing homes will be emphasized in lessons learned from various disasters.
Develop emergency plans that include people with access and functional needs by working with them and their supporting organizations during the planning process for local communities; Identify the concepts of NIMS, the Emergency Management Cycle, Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP), and Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep) and recognize the applicability of this course to the functions of their organization; Formulate roles and responsibilities for the evacuation and sheltering of individuals with access and functional needs, and examine private/public partnerships that enable planning and response efforts; Explore response barriers and examine outreach tactics and strategies as they relate to individuals with access and functional needs living independently; Develop community-level strategies designed to integrate access and functional needs preparedness and response into existing programs, and examine additional matters (medical, safety, security, financial, service animals, and pet care) as they relate to planning with individuals with access and functional needs in rural communities; Develop planning and response strategies tailored to the needs of access and functional needs care providers; and Develop tasks and projects to mitigate the effects of a simulated emergency on a local population with access and functional needs, including providing support to and coordinating with local individuals with access and functional needs during a crisis event.
