Emergency Planning - People with Disabilities
Region 2 VPP Sites:
September is National Preparedness Month. Individuals with disabilities should feel as safe and secure in their communities and work environments as individuals without disabilities. Too often, however, the needs of people with disabilities are not considered in emergency planning. To help address this disparity, US DOL’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) helped develop several resources to assist individuals, organizations, and employers in creating emergency preparedness plans that take into account the needs of people with disabilities. Please see the links below for more information.
Thank you for participating in the Voluntary Protection Program.
