Learn about Emergency Preparedness at Home, Work & On-the-Go at the Brown Bag Lunch Event on March 17

Published March 2, 2015

Unfortunately, our area has been struck with numerous disaster events in recent months. Part of the Providence preparedness strategies include ensuring our caregivers (all employees) are personally prepared. 

Training and education is closer than you may realize. Many members of our Emergency Prep committee have been trained to help our staff learn more about preparing at home. Emergency Preparedness training will build awareness and provide education on topics such as creating a personal and family emergency kit, natural disasters, bioterrorism, chemical emergencies, mass casualty events, emerging infectious diseases, etc.

The very nature of an emergency is filled with uncertainty and unpredictability. Emergency Preparedness is the only way to have any sort of advantage or potential of a positive outcome when faced with disaster

Bo Bodrak, Director Safety and Security and Wendy Turner, Manager, Volunteer Services will lead a conversation about how planning ahead will provide our caregivers with peace of mind during a disaster.

As the people of Providence, it will allow us to be a saving grace for a community in turmoil when disaster strikes and it will allow us to build on our tremendous foundation of knowledge and create a health care organization that will be able to stand with confidence and competence no matter what we’re faced with. Please join us on:

March 17 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in the Cascade Conference Room in the Medical Office Building at Colby Campus.

Dessert and Beverages will be served.
