One of the "lessons learned" all too many times from Loma Prieta to Katrina is that people with disabilities have fared poorly in disaster response due to the lack of disability expertise during these efforts. Please consider attending this special meeting of the DDPC to discuss:
- The City's overall plan for sheltering displaced residents, including people with disabilities and seniors.
- Learn how agencies fit into the big picture of disaster response and recovery for the disability community.
- Solicit your collaboration through a Statement of Understanding (SOU) and identify available resources to assist you in your organizational preparedness.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting in March!
