Webinar Series: Inclusive Emergency Management and Preparedness
from the Pacific ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network

Description:

FEMA is engaged in implementing its Section 504 Disability Access Plan to enhance access for people with disabilities and strengthen compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. FEMA’s Office of Equal Rights is leading this effort and will provide an overview of the 504 Plan and the five focus areas: Public Information, training and exercises, publishing the rights of people with disabilities, disaster recovery programs, and facilities. FEMA’s Office of Equal Rights seeks to build disability-related capacity within FEMA through the 504 Plan. This webinar will provide an overview of FEMA’s 504 Disability Access Plan and strategies the Agency is employing to address the need for enhanced access for people with disabilities in the five focus areas.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of FEMA’s responsibilities to enhance access for people with disabilities in its public-facing programs and activities
  • Learn about how these five focus areas relate to helping people before, during, and after disasters, including people with disabilities, and how FEMA’s initiative relates to access obligations at the state, local, tribal, and territorial levels

Presenter: Stephanie Fell is a Senior Civil Rights Policy Advisor/Section 504 Coordinator at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
