BUSINESS CONTINUITY AWARENESS for Human Service Professionals: Meeting the Needs of Your Consumers with Disabilities During Emergencies

 Workshop Goals:

  •  To begin building a network of local agencies that might be able to assist each other in meeting community needs during an emergency
  •  To identify resources and capabilities of local human service agencies
  •  To understand the importance of encouraging individual emergency planning and preparedness both for employees as well as customers
