Niagara University Disability Awareness Training has received funding from NYS Assembly Member Karen McMahon to educate anyone involved in emergency planning, preparedness, response, and recovery as it pertains to individuals with disabilities and access and functional needs. NU has tailored a presentation that identifies the responsibilities of those who have a role in emergency management and agencies serving
individuals with disabilities, disability advocates, and disability organizations during an emergency. This program will introduce the four modules necessary for proper response that include Disability Awareness Training, the Americans with Disabilities Act specific to Emergency Management, emergency plan content, and Inclusive Planning and Active Participation.
