Cert Accessibility Training. Registration required (below)
This is a fun, interactive workshop using a unique role-player model to engage participants in a safe learning opportunity. The focus is on accessible emergency communications in an evacuation scenario, but the information will also provide an overall understanding of communicating with differently abled people, both as potential CERT team members and with respect to providing them with appropriate and necessary assistance in the event of an emergency or major disaster. The workshop is targeted for CERT volunteers, and is also useful for all emergency responders, including EMS, Fire, and Police.
