Every organization should be prepared for an emergency but are you? Through our partnership with Volunteer Canada, we have trained 20 trainers from disability organizations and volunteer centres to deliver our community training in emergency planning for people with disabilities.
The training manual we created, Prepare to Survive - Prepare to Help, is full of exercises and resources for community groups who want to play a role in emergency planning and response in their communities.
Local governments have a legal "duty to accommodate" people with disabilities in the provision of public services and programs. Our new booklet, Creating Safe Communities, looks at this responsibility in the context of emergency preparedness: what local governments need to do to ensure that all citizens are included in emergency planning and response.
Booklet and video funded by the Law Foundation of British Columbia.
