Father sitting at table with family

Ready Dads, Ready Kids! Webinar

2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST
Webinar: Adobe Connect (Limited to 500 participants)

Studies have shown that involved fathers provide practical support in raising children and serve as models for their development1. Children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, and exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior compared to children who have uninvolved fathers.

Fathers can play an important role in preparing their children for emergencies and disasters. By taking steps to develop a plan before disaster strikes, fathers are able to support their children during and after

On September 25, 2019, as part of 2019 National Preparedness Month, the Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) Office of Human Services Emergency Preparedness and Response (OHSEPR) is hosting a webinar on the importance of fathers taking action to plan for disasters; the role that fathers play in ensuring their children’s safety during a disaster; and the role that fathers play in helping their children return to a sense of normalcy after a disaster.

Presenters will include:

  • Marc Fisher, ACF Region 5 Regional Emergency Management Specialist, ORO
  • LT. Chris Hooban, Preparedness & Community Resilience Coordinator, OHSEPR
  • Carnell Lofton, Program Specialist, Office of Child Support Enforcement
  • Pete Torres, Financial Management Specialist, OHSEPR
  • Monté Wallace, Emergency Management Specialist, OHSEPR
