Local Heroes (DVD)


Local Heroes is an emergency preparedness training and social marketing campaign for public health agencies that is designed to introduce public health workers to the concepts within emergency preparedness and their role in a response.

This DVD-Rom is a “train-the-trainer” and “train-the-workforce” resource that includes training materials and presentations designed to teach individuals how to deliver training to their public health workforce, and to introduce public health employees at all levels to the concept of emergency preparedness. Local Heroes also includes a number of branding and promotional items that can be customized to stimulate interest in emergency preparedness and instill a positive desire among individual public health workers to help them recognize and understand their specific role in response to a public health emergency.
