Disaster Preparedness Presentation for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
On April 15th, Delaware Citizen Corps Staff Bob George, Marny McLee and Dave Ham provided a Disaster Preparedness Presentation for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at the Grace Methodist Church in Wilmington, DE. As part of their presentation, Citizen Corps also played their Disaster Preparedness DVD, which is open captioned and formatted for American Sign Language. An ASL Interpreter was used throughout the presentation. The group is composed from the Tri-States (DE, MD, and PA) and meets regularly at the church. An additional presentation is being planned for Kent and Sussex Counties. The point-of-contact for the presentation was Karen Miller. Loretta Sarro, who was also in attendance, shared her knowledge of the 911 Special Needs Volunteer Registry to the group.
