Survive & Thrive: Emergency Preparedness and Response for People with Disabilities

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

When: 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Throughout the past several months people have been united in a common goal, surviving a global pandemic. For many, performing tasks and remaining socialy distance has been difficult. For people with disabilities, the sense of urgency to be self-sustained at home has been particularly overwhelming.

In recognition of these challenges, LEAP is offering a three-part preparation webinar, Survive and Thrive, Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities.

The webinar discusses

  • the current health emergency as well as other potential emergencies,
  • tools to identify particular needs of people with disabilities,
  • suggests advocacy methods to fulfill these needs before, during and after catastrophes,
  • physical preparation techniques like formal evacuation plans and disaster kits, and
  • addresses emotional and psychological preparedness by considering stress management strategies.

The goal is to survive and thrive during emergencies!

Series: Wednesday, June 3, June 10, and June 17
