Emergency Preparedness

Wednesday, October 21, 2020


Federal, state, local entities, and communities are increasingly developing emergency management and preparedness plans to handle disasters. Emergencies and disasters can be particularly concerning for people with disabilities. Successful outcomes for people with disabilities in disasters depend on how inclusive these plans are. This session will focus on key strategies and approaches at various levels (federal, state, and local) toward emergency management and preparedness and the inclusion of people with disabilities.
