Disaster Preparedness Leaders Workshop

Search&RescueDisaster Preparedness: Leaders Workshop

Duration: 6 Hours

During a disaster most people will experience one  of three reactions. They are; Shock, Fight, Flight or Freeze, and the Bystander Effect.

Each reaction will make that person useless to help either themselves or anyone else. Precious time and possibly even lives can be lost by the inaction these reactions cause.

 

However, there is one simple solution to all three negative reactions – leadership.

Just one person in a crowd, willing to take charge, and ask other people to participate, can rally and motivate a group of people so that they work together effectively to deal with the situation.

This workshop is aimed at giving participants the knowledge and confidence to make a huge difference during a disaster by assuming a leadership role in rescue and survival activities.
