Inclusive Emergency Management: Developing and Effectively Utilizing Disability Advisory Groups

Event Date/Time: 

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016
10:00 AM PST - 11:30 AM PST




It takes leadership, thought, time and community partnerships for emergency plans to encompass the whole community.  Disability Advisory Groups can be used to provide cross-disability perspectives for local/state emergency management to reach successful disability integration and whole community planning.


The 90-minute webinar will discuss the following:

  • The models and approaches used in Idaho and Washington to establish disability advisory groups;
  • How disability advisory groups are providing guidance on equal access to effective communication; physical access; access to programs, goods and services and how this applies to emergency management plans;
  • How disability advisers to emergency management  can work together at the local, state, and federal levels.

Live Closed Captioning will be provided for this webinar.


CRC Credits and Letters of Attendance will be provided for this session upon request.
