The City of Quincy Office of Emergency Management, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety, the Boston Public Health Commission, and the DelValle Institute for Emergency Preparedness, will conduct a Basic Community Emergency Preparedness Course on Jan. 29 and 30.
The blended web-based and in-person interactive course will train participants on preparedness for disasters and emergencies such as blizzards, hurricanes, house fires, and flooding. Following completion of the course, participants will be more knowledgeable and resilient in planning and preparing for potential emergency scenarios. The course will also present attendees with the required concepts to provide technical assistance and guidance to other members of the community during emergencies.
The in-person portion of the course will be conducted on Wednesday, Jan. 30, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Quincy Park and Recreation complex, 1 Merrymount Parkway, and will be open to all Quincy residents.
The web-based portion of the course can be completed anywhere online from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
The course is being offered in a series of courses coordinated by Quincy Emergency Management Director Ally Sleiman, in an initiative to enhance public knowledge and capabilities to respond to and recover from emergency situations and disasters.
