Description: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
This free series of webinars from the Federal Disabilities Workforce Consortium ( FDWC) &eFedLink shares timely information related to the employment of people with disabilities in the Federal government. This particular webinar will focus on Emergency Readiness. After large scale events such as Superstorm Sandy and the recent California wildfires, the need of all people to be able to escape from an emergency sits in the mind of many Americans. What are the options however, when escape may be further complicated by disability, or the inaccessibility of your workplace? This webinar will explore some of the methods the Department of Labor has developed to make sure that everyone, including people with disabilities, can safely evacuate during an emergency. In addition we will focus on preparedness, emergency evacuation, communication, as well as some of the new practices being developed by emergency managers and individuals with disabilities.
