Outreach Session Overview:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Youth Preparedness Council (FEMA’s YPC) works to bring together young people to complete disaster preparedness projects nationally and locally, allowing the next generation of emergency managers to support their communities. This year the FEMA YPC for Region II (New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, U.S Virgin Islands) is working on three unique projects promoting preparedness in our region.
On Tuesday May 17, from 7-8pm the LRWP will host special guests from FEMA Region II’s Youth Preparedness Council for an online conversation about youth involvement in emergency preparedness and planning. In this hour long presentation our guests, all high school students from within the Raritan Basin, will share information on three new projects developed through their work on FEMA’s Youth Council.
These projects include:
-“Mitigation for Youth Guide,” focusing on the prevention of injury and illness from a wide variety of natural disasters
-Social Media Outreach/Awareness Campaign
-“Ready Youth In-A-Box” Preparedness Program that promotes overall preparedness through clubs in schools and youth-oriented environments
