Emergency Preparedness





Emergency Preparedness for People with Access and Functional Needs, Including Disabilities (UCONN UCEDD)

The UCONN Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities has developed a curriculum on emergency preparedness through a grant from the Connecticut Council on Developmental Disabilities. The goal of the project was to assist municipalities in creating/updating their town's emergency preparedness plan so that needs of citizens with developmental disabilities are addressed and to assist people with developmental disabilities in creating their own emergency plans.



People with Disabilities Also Need to Prepare for Emergencies (UC OH UCEDD)

UC UCEDD, as part of the Ohio Disability and Health Program, in partnership with the American Red Cross, offers Disaster & Preparedness Training for People with Disabilities & Their Caregivers, a daylong training session to explore individual needs, regional resources, and emergency preparedness. So far more than 200 people have received this potentially life-saving training.
