The Mohave County Division of Emergency Management strongly supports this training and encourages widespread participation. The training is geared toward persons with developmental disabilities, their families, and caregivers and follows the recommendations for general population disaster preparedness. These include the development of a home emergency plan, preparation of evacuation “Go Kits” and 72-hour shelter-in-place kits, and development of a support network.
Persons interested in becoming Safety First trainers and emergency preparedness advocates will also benefit from this training.The evacuations caused by the Dean Peak Fire in 2013 have raised public awareness of the potential for large scale disaster events in the county, including wildfires, flooding, hazardous materials incidents, windstorms, or other events. All county residents should become familiar with potential hazards in their home and work locations and be prepared to evacuate or shelter-in-place at the direction of emergency services personnel.
