Including Disability in State and Local Offices of Emergency Management
Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
2:00 PM EDT - 3:30 PM EDT
It is important to include the voice of people with disabilities in planning and preparation for emergency management. This can be accomplished through the inclusion of community members who have disabilities when preparing, training, or developing for emergency plans. It can be equally important to have people with disabilities located in the offices of emergency management or related offices to convey the disability perspective.This talk includes speakers who will provide first-hand experience with getting the disability voice included.
