ADA National Network Learning Session: Recovery from the recent disasters: Lessons for disability planning in remote areas
Thursday, March 8th, 2018
11:30 AM PST - 1:00 PM PST
Any community can become isolated during a disaster even if they aren't directly impacted. Through a historical perspective and actual disaster experiences, three FEMA Regional Disability Integration Specialists will look at:
- the realities of disaster impacts on systems which may already be stretched thin even during regular daily existence;
- how community partners can play a role in both response and recovery; and
- how to identify real shortfalls in plans and actual events.
- Understand the recovery processes for people with access and functional needs (especially people with disabilities) from recent disasters
