The American Red Cross is collaborating with the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Disability and Health Program and Centers for Independent Living throughout Illinois to provide trainings for people with disabilities on how to be better prepared for emergencies by developing an emergency plan and emergency kit.
The FREE workshop will cover why it is important to be prepared for emergencies and what a person can do to be better prepared if they are forced to stay in their home during a disaster or if they must take shelter at another location. This two-hour training will provide specific tips for people with different disabilities or needs. Materials and resources will be provided to assist the participant in creating their own emergency plan/kit to meet their individual and specific needs in a time of disaster or emergency.
This workshop is free! Registration is required. Contact SCIL @ (217)523-2587 v/tty to register.
This project is made possible by funds received from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
