Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities: Have we made progress?

Tuesday, December 14, 2004

On Thursday, July 22, 2004, President Bush signed an Executive Order on Individuals with Disabilities in Emergency Preparedness. The Executive Order establishes within the Department of Homeland Security an Interagency Coordinating Council for Emergency Preparedness and Individuals with Disabilities. This session will discuss the progress made toward this initiative as well as provide some valuable information and resources that can be utilized by individuals, state and local governments, employers and others to incorporate the needs of people with disabilities in their emergency planning process.
