Niagara University Disability Awareness Training has received a grant from the Nebraska Council on Developmental Disabilities to educate anyone involved in emergency planning, preparedness, response, and recovery as it pertains to individuals with disabilities and access and functional needs. NU has tailored a presentation that identifies the responsibilities of both emergency management personnel and disability advocates during an emergency. This program will introduce the four modules necessary for proper response that include Disability Awareness Training, the Americans with Disabilities Act specific to Emergency management, emergency plan content, and Inclusive Planning and Active Participation.
Option B: Half-Day Training: This program educates individuals who want to learn about the process, be active in a capacity that suits their interest and availability, and wants to assist in directing peers and
colleagues within their demographic, municipality, or line of work. Requirement to report
any emergency management participation is expected but not required in this role.
