Training Resources for Citizen Preparedness

Two PowerPoint presentations have been developed to educate citizens and volunteers about how to prepare for emergencies.  

These materials were prepared under a grant from FEMA’s Grant Programs Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  The Virginia Department of Emergency Management was awarded a grant to provide Protective Actions Preparedness Training based on research conducted on likely behaviors of National Capital Region residents in case of emergency and specifically in case of “dirty bomb” attacks.
