The Whole Community Preparedness Programs approach allows residents, neighborhoods, local officials, businesses, non-profits, faith-based organizations, and emergency management officials to collectively understand and assess the needs of their respective communities, determine the best ways to organize their resources, and be prepared for emergency events. Denver has embraced the “Whole Community Preparedness Programs” (WCPP) concept and invites our community partners to help build a stronger, more resilient community. If you would like to participate in any of the WCPPs offered, please contact Carolyn Bluhm, Community Relations Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org unless otherwise noted.
The program is guided by the principle that every individual has a role to play in keeping our communities safe. The CAP is currently being provided by Denver’s OEMHS and available to groups and organization throughout Denver and lasts approximately two and a half hours.
This is a program offered to our community partners that have an interest in making Denver a better prepared community. The goal is to strengthen our community resilience through presentations ranging from 20 minute to one hour. They are presented to neighborhood groups, businesses, faith-based organizations, schools, clubs, retirees, state and federal employees, and other interested parties.
The program teaches basic response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. At the completion of this training, participants are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in our community.
The Face to Face program is offered on the last Tuesday of each month.
