Description:

POSTPONED The following webinar is postponed to May 14, 2020 (originally scheduled March 12, 2020). Thank you for your understanding.

This webinar will focus on the 2019 California Public Safety Power Shut-offs (PSPS) including stories from the community, barriers experienced, coordination across public and private agencies, and effective strategies that could become best practices. Working together as individuals to build a resilient community that keeps each other safe, aware, engaged and informed is a part of how we need to plan for the future.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand and recognize the specific barriers that people with disabilities and older adults experience during PSPS events.
  • Learn about strategies on how to improve communication and coordination of services for individuals with disabilities and older adults.
  • Learn where to go for resources when you or your community is impacted.
