Emergency Management Training
This two-day workshop is in partnership with the Alberta Emergency Management Agency.  The target audience is intended for, but not limited to social services, emergency services, public health, local organizations, victim services, clergy, and non-government agencies.  Basic Emergency Management (BEM) is encouraged prior to the course.  A self-study version of BEM can be found online at http://www.aema.alberta.ca/bem.  If volunteers wish to work with Cold Lake and District FCSS Emergency Social Services, it is highly recommended that they complete the following courses. 

Emergency Social Services – Day 1
Large-scale disasters require the activation of the community’s Emergency Social Services Response Plan to meet the urgent needs until regular social services or special recovery programs are in operation. The community’s Emergency Social Services Response Plan is a specialized component of the Municipal Emergency Plan.

Registration and Inquiry Course – Day 2
In a major disaster, family members may become separated. This can trigger acute anxiety and fear. The Registration and Inquiry course, which is part of the municipality’s Disaster Social Services Response Plan, would be activated to collect information and answer inquiries about the condition and whereabouts of survivors.

Persons with Functional Needs – Day 2
In a major disaster, it is important to include persons with disabilities in emergency plans.

Developing Good Bedtime Routines    
Children need a good night’s sleep so they have enough energy for the next day’s activities. Parents also need adequate sleep and some child free time to ensure their own needs are being met. As children grow, they can learn to become more independent in their sleep routine and be less demanding than infants. The goal is for children to develop healthy, independent sleep patterns. This discussion group will give some positive parenting strategies to help you develop a good bedtime routine.

Date:  Thursday, September 21 or Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Cost:  Free, registration is required
Time:   9:30 am to 11:30 am
Location:  Cold Lake and District FCSS
