I genuinely can't say enough about the Emergency Preparedness Certificate Program.   The information was fascinating and I am coming back to my team with many things to implement.  Not only did I learn about how to plan for emergencies for our clients and to assess different risk factors for each program, but I learned a lot of things that apply to keeping myself and my family safe.  I'm so glad I had the opportunity to participate!

Even for a company with a well-established Emergency Preparedness plan, it was great to hear some other perspectives and insights we can use to enhance and strengthen our plan even further.
