 Please explain this to me? They only had this class Nov 17-Dec 17. No classes planned this year. No classes before Nov 17th.

There were 4 classes before Dec. 14th, Dec 14th, and then One class Dec. 17th, and it disappeared. FEMA actually renamed the class too, but the new class isn't on the schedule at all.

The goal of the course is to enable participants to improve their community’s mitigation and emergency operations plan specifically regarding the needs of children. The course will provide them with the information needed to address the unique needs of children prior to, during and following disasters. It will also provide them guidance and direction on how to form coalitions and how to become advocates for the unique needs of children in all aspects of emergency management.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
• Articulate the importance of providing for the needs of children in disasters in your community’s current emergency management plan.

• Explain the planning components necessary to address the unique needs of children prior to, during and following disasters
• Incorporate the unique needs of children in disasters into Emergency Operations Plans
• Identify stakeholders and organizations that can assist in preparing for the needs of children in disasters.
• Initiate steps to form coalitions and build teams that have a stake in keeping children safe in disasters

 can you explain why they have THIS class 20 minutes from the school, Sandy Hook, ON the day, and 3 before, 1 after? It is ironic. Not one class besides those before or scheduled this year. Look at the name of the class.

Maybe because the community is crippled by the tragedy and they still need time to get themselves back together. I

t took almost a year after the first tornados for our community to do classes on how to deal with them. The whole area was torn apart and barely able to figure out what to do next.

 then please explain why they didn't have them before November 17th, and why the Governer said that they were warned something like this may happen in their state.

Oh - I thought this was a real question....now I see it is just a conspiracy theory thing.  Good luck with that.

Are you one of those that believe in the conspiracy theory floating around right now? Is that where this is going?

Coincidence?

You think they set up a disaster preparedness class near sandy hook, made this boy go all postal, kill his mom and a bunch of kids and teachers for... practice?

And who warned the governor personally someone might go all postal at sandy hook that day that time?

Ockham's razor folks. Google it.
