Is 2020 Over Yet?
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s taught us to expect the unexpected! No longer can we use phrases like…. “Nothing short of a pandemic will stop me from (insert whatever here).” The last month of the year is a great time to review our own Emergency Preparedness Plans.
Idaho SILC will be hosting an Emergency Preparedness online workshop Monday, December 14th at 2:00 pm Mountain Time/1:00 pm Pacific Time. Register at www.surveymonkey.com/r/SNHZ5NT and get a FREE Emergency Preparedness Folder! The Zoom information will be sent to you after registering.
Once you have completed the workshop, SILC will send you a FREE Emergency Go Bag filled with items get you started on building you own Emergency Kit. Captioning and ASL will be provided. For questions or accommodation requests or to register by phone, please contact Jami Davis at 208-334-3800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a large gap between people with disabilities and emergency planners and responders. Including people with disabilities in disaster planning, response and recover is necessary to identify and address gaps in the planning process. Do your best to be prepared!
