Share Your Deaf Disaster Stories
Have YOU been affected by a disaster or emergency situation? If so, YOUR story of how you were affected could help other Deaf people (and people with disabilities) in the United States benefit from better emergency planning in the future.
I mentioned in this space yesterday, and am reminding again today: The US National Coalition on Disabilities is gathering feedback from people. They will be using the information from ordinary people like YOU to make recommendations to the government on how to improve disaster and emergency planning for people with disabilities.
But there isn’t much time left. They need to receive your comments by SEPTEMBER 16. That means you have the rest of this week, including the weekend, to think about what information and documentation you want to share and write it up.
Learn more about the feedback process and what kind of information would be most helpful by going to this web site:
