Better Together – resilience and emergency management course

Posted on: September 12th, 2017

Boulder County and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management will be facilitating a session of Better Together at the Four Mile Fire Department, Poorman Fire Station (1740 Fourmile Canyon Dr., Boulder, 80302). 

What is Better Together

Better Together explores the meaning of resilience and the role of emergency management, and helps individuals develop personal skills and connections to navigate emergency situations. 

The course consists of three sessions and features a variety of interactive exercises, group discussions, guest speakers, and activities aimed at developing a mindset of resilience in the context of a variety of hazards. Participants who complete the three-session course will be better equipped to build resilience in their communities and increase capacity to help protect themselves, their family, and their neighbors during any emergency.
