Prepared4ALL Course 7: Whole Community Emergency Planning

EM stands in front of a community meeting. About 20 people sit in a meeting room, wearing face masks.
It may not seem like it but the people in this room are socially distanced. There is an American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter in this room to sign for anyone who needs it.

⌛This lesson will take about one hour to complete, although every learner moves at their own pace.

This course is intended to help local disability organizations strengthen engagement with local emergency and public health preparedness planners, with the goal of getting a seat at the local emergency planning table.
