Webinar Series: Inclusive Emergency Management and Preparedness
from the ADA National Network, Great Lakes ADA Center, and Pacific ADA Center


Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico about one year ago. In this presentation, members of the Puerto Rico Disability Community Relief Network (PRDCRN) will review the impact of the hurricane on people with disabilities and how this experience moved them to create a disability network that is involved in disaster planning, response, and recovery issues for people with disabilities in the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss what happened during Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
  • Identify the impact the hurricane had on people with disabilities in PR and the lacking response and recovery efforts by state and federal governments.
  • Learn the efforts the PRDCRN conducted during the immediate aftermath of the hurricane and continue to carry out one year later to improve inclusive emergency preparedness in Puerto Rico.
