FEMA and Disability Integration

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently disbursed its monthly newsletter, the Disability Integration Update. If you didn't get one, the newsletter is "a monthly compilation of news, events and resources related to disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities by and for people with disabilities or access and functional needs." It is meant to offer information for FEMA Region V partners interested in inclusive emergency management. Stories in January's issue include:

  • Home Heating Safety
  • FEMA Hiring Disability Integration Advisor Reservists
  • US Department of Justice Publishes New Technical Assistance Documents
  • Federal Hiring of People with Disabilities Increases

Want a copy? Comments, questions and requests for alternate formats can be directed to Jessica Mitchell, Region V Disability Integration Specialist, at 312-408-5499 or Jessica.mitchell@fema.dhs.gov.
