Please join the Region II National Preparedness Division for a webinar providing an overview of the various aspects of accessible communications and how to effectively create them throughout the disaster cycle.
In this one hour webinar you will learn about “plain language” writing and the basic principles of writing clear communications for your audience. Speakers will also provide an overview of  changes in technology, specifically virtual platforms, that can present accessibility challenges (i.e. language access). Subject matter experts from FEMA and the community will offer invaluable insight, information and resources to assist participants in advancing the goal of Inclusive Emergency Management. 

Who should attend this webinar? State and local emergency managers, 
communication professionals and members of the whole community
who wish to be more inclusive in their communications.

FEMA works to ensure equitable access for all to any services and programs that are provided by the agency. If you need a reasonable accommodation, please make your request in an email to fema-r2-prepares@fema.dhs.gov. Last minute requests will be accepted, but may not be possible to fulfill.
