Third Monday of Every Other Month from 2:00 to 3:30 PM (date/times are subject to change)
ACI, 629 Amboy Ave, Edison, NJ

Are you a person with a disability living in Middlesex County? Are you concerned about disasters? Join us for the next meeting of the Core Advisory Group (CAG). This is a great opportunity to work together with emergency managers and FEMA to make effective changes in how emergency services are provided to people with disabilities in the event of a disaster. We need your input!

In 2010, FEMA began hiring disability integration specials to help make disaster response efforts fully inclusive of all people in the community. They developed a model called Core Advisory Group (CAG). Middlesex County will be the first county in New Jersey to form CAG. We are inviting people with disabilities who are interested in a balanced approach to emergency management for ensuring full inclusion.

If you need accommodations, please contact us as soon as possible. Light snacks will be served. For Middlesex County residents only.

NOTE: Our next meeting will be on August 20th.
