Disaster Preparedness Planning Toolkit

The Toolkit includes a set of 17 participatory activities and tools intended to support learning, encourage discussion and analyze information related to disaster preparedness. It also contains 13 tables and templates designed to help present information gathered through the course of the participative activities and other information gathering exercises for inclusion in the written disaster preparedness plan. As with the Guide to Disaster Preparedness Planning this Toolkit is for YMCAs interested in improving their capacity to respond to the needs of their communities in the event of a disaster. The tools are not limited to any particular region or country, or type of disaster or emergency. More specifically, the Toolkit is aimed at YMCA staff and volunteers who will be facilitating and leading workshops related to the process of disaster preparedness planning. For those interested in finding out more about what the process of disaster preparedness planning entails, they should refer to the accompanying Guide. The Toolkit should be used in combination with the Guide in order to help put the activities in context. The Toolkit is broken up into 3 sections; Understanding in Practice, Participatory Tools, and Templates and Tables.
