Training Curriculum: Organizing Pet-Friendly Evacuation Shelters
When the University of Florida’s program in agricultural safety needed help designing a curriculum and training materials for a public safety program, it turned to Steppingstone LLC for help.
Researchers and educators knew that people were more likely to leave flood-prone and dangerous areas when advised to evacuate during a weather emergency, if they could go to a pet-friendly shelter. The goal of the project was to create a set of training materials that would help local government staff and volunteers tasked with setting up shelters incorporate pet-friendly practices.
The project involved creating a set of training materials – including participant workbooks, PowerPoint presentations and support materials.
