Emergency Management Disability Resource

Was thinking today about disabilities and the challenges that they bring to emergency management and resiliency. I came across this website from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and wanted to share. It is a list of disability resources and health care resources for emergency managers to better help them with plans and preparing for a disaster and other emergencies. The CDC says this about the program:

The following resources were developed by CDC funded State Disability and Health Programs. Public health professionals, emergency personnel and communities can use them to create emergency preparedness and response plans that are inclusive of people with disabilities.

Here is the link to the CDC website:

I look forward to learning and growing so what resources do you or can you share with others to help them prepare for a emergency and better their plans?
