Ah, fall. A time of corn mazes and costumes. Candy corn and cider. And, with all due alliteration…
The Citizen Corps Conference!
The conference is set for November 2-6 at the Holiday Inn Portland Airport and it’s a great opportunity to beef up your preparedness, response and recovery skills. The public is very welcome.
Here’s are just a few of the more intriguing course offerings:
- Holistic Hazard Mitigation
- Disaster Psychological Intervention
- Map your Neighborhood
- Using Social Media
- FRS and HAM Radio Use During Disasters
- Useful Spanish Phrases for First Responders
And then there are my two favorites — Dealing with Difficult People and…OMG…wait for it…What to do with Pee and Poo. I honestly have NO IDEA what that course will entail, but COME ON, you know you wanna find out!
The good news is that it’ll only cost you $5 to attend the conference, thanks to grant funding that brought the original price of $40 way, way down. If you’d like to register or for more details, go here:
