Reactions to crisis may vary.

It takes special knowledge to recognize how to help others.

Learn which reactions are harmful and which are beneficial and gain critical skills you can use in any emergency to connect to affected people. Take away important tools to provide immediate emotional support in an emergency event. Share your skills with family members, neighbors and others in your community.

This event is a Pierce County Preparedness Academy class offered in partnership with Pierce County Emergency Management.
