We never know when a disaster will occur or even what it will look or feel like to us or the people around us. At times this can make us feel powerless and out of control.
Knowing what is “normal” and understanding how you and your family may feel before, during and after a disaster can help you and them get back to “normal” again, whatever that is for you.
Here’s a good disaster psychology video to remind you about some of the tools you have at your disposal.
Disaster Psychology Review
Our West Orange County CERT program teaches and reviews skills like this during our bi-monthly training sessions (complete with a great pot-luck and fellowship), our periodic training Saturdays, and our CERT Academy courses. If you would like to find out more about our CERT program and how it can help you keep your family safe in a disaster, please contact us here. If you are not in our area, we will try to connect you to your local CERT program. The more people who are trained, the better prepared our country is – and that is our intent. #CERTforAll
