Geiger, Brian F.; Firsing, Stephen L., III; Beric, Bojana; Rodgers, Joel B.
American Journal of Health Education, v44 n3 p128-133 2013
This article provides a resourceful guide for the health education specialist to improve emergency management knowledge and skills specific to their setting, including training and preparing for emergencies and providing adequate support to students, clients, and colleagues. Five steps guide competent health education practice before, during, and after a crisis event. Free training resources and priority actions are emphasized. The authors underscore professional benefits of emergency readiness that align with performance expectations established by the Coalition of National Health Education Organizations, including promoting and protecting the health of individuals, families, and communities and providing education and services to reduce costly premature deaths and disability.
