Federal Emergency Management Agency


Dear Partner,


I am excited to share the soft launch of our Organizations Preparing for Emergency Needs (OPEN) training.

While our official launch will take place during National Preparedness Month in September, we wanted to

provide you with a sneak peek of this helpful training resource. In the meantime, please consider

completing this training and sharing it with others throughout your organization. OPEN training is available



After taking OPEN, you and your organization will be better prepared to continue operations following a



OPEN training will help you:

  • Learn ten actions you can take to keep your organization operating in the event of a disaster;

  • Create a path forward to develop a disaster response plan;

  • Ensure the safety of workers and individuals; and

  • Be more resilient against all emergencies, including a pandemic.


OPEN includes a web-based, self-guided training. OPEN also has a downloadable instructor kit that will guide

participants on how to identify risks, locate resources, and take preparedness actions. With the COVID-19

pandemic still impacting our communities, we’ve included information that will help organizations navigate

this and future pandemics.


OPEN training is for:

  • Faith-based organization leaders

  • Small business owners

  • Childcare centers

  • Food banks

  • Risk managers

  • Human Resource managers

  • Other employees who work at CBOs

  • Local and state-level coordinators and employees

  • Previously trained CBOs

  • Individuals and groups interested in preparedness and disaster response


Once again, I am thrilled to share our newest OPEN training that our team at FEMA’s Individual Community

and Preparedness Division has created.


I encourage you to share your feedback or send us questions to
