Workshop - Sign Language for Emergency Situations

Organizations and schools prepare for emergency situations like fire by having fire escape plans and offer 1st Aid and CPR classes for medical emergencies but how would you communicate to a deaf person in an emergency?  We have the answer to that question in the form of a sign language workshop that will help in emergency situations when communication is so vital.  A sign language workshop for emergency situations.  This workshop has topics such as:
