When it comes to emergency planning, the District takes a whole community approach that engages individuals with disabilities and others with access and functional needs (DAFN) before, during and after an emergency. We embrace the disability community’s saying, “Nothing about us, without us,” and look forward to discussing the community's needs and challenges.

In honor of National Preparedness Month, please join us on September 26, 2019 for the District Government and Disability Community's Inaugural Emergency Preparedness Summit. The Summit will launch the Outreach and Engagement component of the District’s Emergency Preparedness Disability Integration Initiative (EPDII.) 
Summit Objectives
  1. Meet the member organizations of the newly-formed Disability Community Advisory Group (DCAG.)
  2. Meet District emergency managers and partner agencies that have a role in EPDII.
  3. Learn how the District and DCAG plan to improve emergency planning.  
  4. Receive a toolkit for creating your Business Continuity Plan.
  5. Receive a toolkit for creating your Personal Emergency Plan
To request reasonable accommodations, please contact Cynthia Jones at Cynthia.Jones4@dc.gov or 202-256-4413 by September 20, 2019.
