I sometimes wonder this based on what others perceive and what I ask myself. I have a number of issues but do not consider them disabilities but challenges. Why should something that sounds like something hard and almost negative stop anyone. From my perspective it should not.
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.
