About the Training
Join the IL Conversation, Getting it Right: Inclusive Disaster Strategies on March 10, 2016 at 3:00PM Eastern with Shari Myers, Chief Operating Officer, Portlight and Paul Timmons, Disability Integration Coordinator, American Red Cross to discuss ways your center can address inclusive disaster strategies for your community.
- Learn how to engage with Red Cross, local emergency management agencies, and other important community partners, to ensure inclusion in disaster planning.
- Learn how to identify opportunities to work together for the mutual benefit of all partners, i.e., emergency preparedness education and training, including how to foster participation of people with disabilities in drills and exercises, and training for emergency management on disability culture, the IL movement, and developing disability competency within their profession.
- Understand the importance of encouraging people with disabilities to volunteer, particularly with Red Cross. In addition, how to help volunteer agencies create an environment which welcomes us, and recognizes our value as subject matter experts.
- Discuss ways in which your center can or does promote disaster awareness, or otherwise provide specific education or training on emergency preparedness.
