The event has ended. Thank you
Please join the Region II National Preparedness Division for a webinar to learn how people who rely on electricity- and battery-dependent assistive technology and durable medical equipment can prepare for emergencies.
Subject matter experts will offer emergency preparedness tips and resources, including checklists, to assist in planning for a power outage. They will also provide guidance on how people with disabilities and access and functional needs (AFN) can prepare for extreme heat events. Who should attend this webinar? Individuals who are power dependent, their caretakers, and organizations that provide services to this aspect of the AFN community.
