Any community can become isolated during a disaster even if they aren't directly impacted. Through a historical perspective and actual disaster experiences, three FEMA Regional Disability Integration Specialists will look at:
- The realities of disaster impacts on systems which may already be stretched thin even during regular daily existence;
- How community partners can play a role in both response and recovery; and
- How to identify real shortfalls in plans and actual events.
- Understand the recovery processes for people with access and functional needs (especially people with disabilities) from recent disasters
- Roxann Crawford, FEMA Region IX Disability Integration Specialist
- Michael Houston, FEMA Region VIII Disability Integration Specialist
- Danielle Bailey, FEMA Region X Disability Integration Specialist.
