September is National Preparedness Month. As many Texas communities have experienced over the last couple of years, it is imperative for individuals and families to be prepared for a variety of manmade and national emergencies. It is important for individuals with disabilities to consider individual circumstances and needs to effectively prepare for emergencies and disasters. Join us for an overview of key considerations that individuals with disabilities should consider before, during, and after a disaster. The presentation will also provide a synopsis of how FEMA supports individuals with disabilities that are impacted by a disaster.
