Response Planning for People with Access and Functional Needs in Rural America

September 15, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hosted by the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) and FEMA Region X, this virtual, two-day course is designed to assist in
preparing communities to meet the assistance and safety needs of older adults, and people with access and functional needs during a crisis event in rural communities using an approach with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Whole Community initiative. Due to the expected diverse student population, general information regarding crisis planning and response (incident command system (ICS), National Incident Management System (NIMS), etc.) will be discussed, flowing into a narrower discussion regarding the needs and care issues of older adults. Included in the discussion are short and long-term care, pet care, medication, and the need for durable medical equipment and healthcare.
