The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is hosting a webinar to help families plan in advance for emergencies, which will help ensure that all the members of the household—including children and people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, as well as outside caregivers—know how to reach each other and where to meet up in an emergency. The webinar will provide an overview of America’s PrepareAthon!, showcase the recently released Be Smart. Take Part. Create Your Family Emergency Communication Plan, and inform the public on the importance of making a family plan, especially in the event communication networks such as mobile phones and computers are not accessible.
Hear from Mathew Lyttle of the FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division and guest speakers on family emergency planning, Edward Johnson and Karrie Delaney.
