Classroom Emergency Preparedness workshop

A new workshop on Classroom Emergency Preparedness has been developed through a partnership between the Office of Emergency Management and the Teaching and Learning Center

This training is for anyone who is responsible for managing a classroom and provides practical tools for handling the kinds of emergency situations that are most likely to arise in a classroom setting. In this program, participants will learn how to care for themselves and others using easy-to-remember strategies for preparing and responding to natural disasters, behavioral disruptions, common medical emergencies, and active shooter scenarios. The workshop is designed to build confidence in participants’ capacity to plan for and respond to unanticipated events. 

This training will be widely available in Fall Quarter 2024, but it is being offered now as a pilot in response to strong demand from the campus community. Feedback and input will be sought from workshop participants. 

The training will be offered at four different times (two online and two in-person). As the training includes difficult content, including a video with depictions of an active shooter scenario, all who are able to try to attend one of the in-person offerings are encouraged to do so. A zoom option will also be available, but there will not be a hybrid option at this time. 

The workshop will be offered at the following times and modalities:

  • Thursday, May 9, 2-3pm (Online)
  • Monday, May 13, 1-2pm (Online)
  • Tuesday, May 14, 3-4pm (In-person)
  • Wednesday, May 15, 10-11am (In-person)

Please complete this brief registration form. It is important that you indicate the session that you will attend so that an appropriately sized room can be secured.
