Is getting people to prepare an impossible pipe dream or a
Get Ready! Workshop
June 8, 2021
9:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Even though we live in an earthquake country, we aren’t ready for a significant event. Will we ever be? February 28 marked the 20th anniversary of the Nisqually earthquake. Are we more prepared now than we were twenty years ago for the next big one?
- Why is it so difficult to get ready?
- Are Emergency Managers the right people to carry the preparedness message?
- If not, why not?
- If not, who is?
Students will receive a free copy of Deb Moller’s book:
“Get Ready – How to Prepare for and Stay Safe After a Pacific Northwest Earthquake.”
Instead of charging for this workshop, we ask people to donate a minimum of $25.00 to the Jamye Wisecup Scholarship Fund to help support students in the all-hazards emergency management career pathway programs. Please see the information below on how to contribute to the Scholarship Fund down below.
This class will use:
- Adult Learning Principles
- Marketing efforts will shed light on how you can better target your time on preparedness, leading to better results.
- Explore ways to evaluate your particular situation to determine where and how you can increase your preparedness programs’ effectiveness.
The class examines:
- Key errors in thinking that prevent people from getting prepared.
- Highlight the most effective element that can be leveraged to get people to take action.
- Using brief content delivery modules.
- Interactive small group exercises.
- Platform for continuing conversations among class participants.
- Students may schedule a free one-hour consultation after the class on a student’s preparedness topic.
We are asking participants to donate to the Jamye Wisecup Scholarship Fund at Peninsula College’s Foundation. Our goal is to reach $30,000.00 for an endowment, which would help support students in the all-hazards emergency management career pathway programs.
A donation of $25.00 would help us reach our goal and continue to honor Jamye’s memory.
