Safety and Family Support Courses Offered at Carroll Community College
Carroll Community College offers a variety of courses for safety and family support training this spring:
Family Emergency Preparedness
People don't plan to fail - people fail to plan. Are you prepared for a tornado, hurricane, fire or man-made disaster? You should have an emergency plan before a disaster strikes. Do you have recovery plans in place? Learn what type of emergency is most likely to strike in this area and why your family should have an emergency plan - and develop one specific to your family. Receive guidance in developing your emergency plan and formulating your family recovery plan. Invest your time wisely.
Cost: $85 ($30 for Maryland senior adults)
