The Overnight Shelter Exercise, “Everyone’s” Included presentation will give the participants the tools to work within their own communities so they will be able to execute their own shelter exercise.
The exercise brings together all community stakeholders to participate in a full scale overnight experience. It is essential to bring together first responders and the disability community as equal partners. By doing so, barriers are removed and each community can learn from the other. Preparing first responders and people with disabilities for the next disaster together will save lives.
