Presented by the Pacific ADA Center as part of the Emergency Management and Preparedness - Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities Webinar Series
Feeling Safe, Being Safe was the first online emergency preparedness training series developed by people with intellectual disabilities for people with disabilities and older adults. The success of Feeling Safe, Being Safe has encouraged adaptation of this model for training development and delivery on a variety of related disability inclusive emergency management initiatives throughout disaster response, recovery and mitigation. This webinar will examine the strategies used to develop and pilot the community based online community training module, train-the-trainer series and easy-to-use materials. Webinar facilitators will speak about the value of end-user engagement in emergency management training tools.
Feeling Safe, Being Safe was originally developed by The Board Resource Center and California Department of Developmental Services with funding from FEMA/DHS in 2009.
