AUCD's Public Health Team Launches Prepared4ALL Initiative

The Prepared4ALL initiative, offered by AUCD's new Technical Assistance and Training Center, is excited to announce the launch of their online training, "Prepared4ALL: Whole Community Inclusive Emergency Planning". This free self-paced online training aims to help disability organizations increase their knowledge about emergency planning so they can begin or continue to get involved in these efforts in their local community while also building sustainable partnerships with their local emergency and public health professionals. This training is centered around the Prepared4ALL process, a strength-based model which helps organizations creatively and flexibly navigate inclusion and accessibility issues.
