Staff Perspective: Building Your Emergency Support Toolkit

Take a moment and think about the ways you prepare for emergency situations in your personal life. Various activities might come to mind, like stocking up on essentials at the grocery store when a major storm is about to blow through your community. Perhaps you imagine gathering phone numbers and contact information for loved ones and providers that serve you or your family members, imagining a scenario in which hard news needs to be communicated or individuals found for support. Whatever the emergency that came to mind, it is likely that you thought of your readiness to respond; use of information, tangible resources, or products; and/or connection with others.

Dr. Bill Brim

Are you a member of Division 19? Division 19 of the American Psychological Association is the Society for Military Psychology and is one of the original divisions of APA having been established in 1945 as a charter division. If you are a military psychologist or someone who works with service members, veterans or military families I highly encourage you to take a look at all that Division 19 does for military psychology and has to offer its members.
