Disabilities Forum

Delaware Citizen Corps participated in a forum that the Developmental Disability Center (DDC) from the University of DE sponsored in August to help educate citizens of the importance of planning for those with disabilities in a disaster.  The DDC utilized Inclusive Preparedness to facilitate a scenario where citizens had to think about Emergency Planning from a Nor'Easter hitting Delaware. Citizen Corps provided a presentation on Emergency Preparedness which included Special Needs considerations. There were 4 events over a period of two days, all conducted at Del Tech- Wilmington Campus, Stanton, Dover and Georgetown. The target audience was the Special Needs community and their support staff and or Agency.
