The purpose of this important initiative is to work with the management and staff of Springpoint Senior Living communities throughout New Jersey to strengthen the ability of each community and its residents to prepare for, respond to and recover from various disasters and emergencies.
An important component of this initiative will be to provide meaningful and engaging resources to assist each community to enhance its DISASTER READINESS capabilities.
Each week a new training video is added to the list of Disaster Training videos found below. Management and staff from each of the participating Springpoint Senior Living communities will need to access and view the video as part of their on-going disaster training activities.
Upon watching the training video a Certificate of Participation should be requested via the training video web site. Once you receive your certificate please forward it, via e-mail to Lystra Doobraj, as documentation that you have completed the weekly training.
