FEMA Urban Hazards Forum V: Conference on Emergency Preparedness for Special Needs Populations
Hosted by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Council for Excellence in Government (CEG), and Center for Urban Research (CUR)

This conference will serve as a forum to improve preparedness, conduct training, demonstrate exercises and share best practices for special needs individuals and communities.

Members of the emergency management and emergency services communities (including OEMs; Police; Fire and EMS), special needs advocates, and representatives from the special needs communities are encouraged to attend. Also, we welcome individuals from voluntary organizations active in disaster (VOADs), disaster human service agencies, and faith-based emergency and disaster groups to participate. Interdisciplinary dialog among all conference participants will be encouraged!

We ask that you please click on the link directly below to complete a brief emergency preparedness questionnaire. This survey, which is known as the Public Readiness Index (PRI), is a first-of-its-kind tool to help individuals determine their “readiness quotient.” Results will be tabulated and announced at the conference.

Please check back on this site for updates to the conference schedule (including an agenda and detailed session information).  Registrants will be receiving follow-up emails regarding this information as well.  Once you have registered, please keep a look out for this information in your email inbox.  We will be conducting individual session sign-up through these follow-up emails, which will require your prompt reply.

* * Large Print, Braille, ASL Interpretation, Assistive Listening Devices, CART (Open Captioning) will be made available to conference attendees upon request. You will be prompted to list any special needs requests during the registration process.  These requests must be received by July 28, so please register as soon as possible. * *
