Access & Functional Needs Commitee - Red Cross: Disaster Services Lunch and Learn

09/22/2015 - 11:30am - 1:00pm

19% of the population – approximately 56.7 million noninstitutionalized people – have some type of disability.  More than 12.6%, or 38.3 million people, have a severe disability.  Individuals requiring Functional and Access Needs Support Services may have physical, sensory, mental health, cognitive, and intellectual needs (also known as Access and Functional Needs, or AFN) that affect their ability to function independently, especially in the aftermath of disasters.  And there are others that may benefit from FNSS include women in late stages of pregnancy, elders, and people needing bariatric equipment.

Join Gil an Shirl Garcia as they facilitate a robust discussion on Standards of Compliance, WHY Red Cross and other mass care providers should comply, case studies from across the nation, and how the whole community can plan for and provide disaster relief services to people with access and functional needs.

We have had to make a change to our schedule for this lunch and learn due to some technical difficulties and scheduling conflicts. It will now be held Tuesday, September 22nd from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM.  I will update our flyer and re-send. In the meantime, I will get with everyone who has RSVPd to me and would appreciate you getting the word out as well where needed.
