SEPTEMBER IS
NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH
Ready.gov leads the observance of National Preparedness Month, a time to highlight the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies. The 2021 theme is “Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.” Free resources available for families, children, individuals with disabilities, and organizations.
Free and in-person Safety Awareness Training in Sioux Falls, Tuesday, Sept 28 from 6:30-9pm.
  • Whether you are a parent of a toddler or an adult transitioning to adult life, there are many factors that go into ensuring the safety and well-being of a person with a disability. Establishing a fire safety or disaster preparedness plan, interacting with a police officer, calling and communicating with a 9- 1-1 operator, having medical information ready for the EMT, and many other aspects are important to the well-being of any individual, but how does it differ and what do we need to know to be sure it turns out best for the individual.

Virtual and free First Responder Disability Awareness Training for people with disabilities, their families, disability advocates and those invested in the disability community. Wednesday, Oct 27 from 1-3pm CT.
  • This two-hour training provides guidance on how to advocate with first responders, inform them of your needs, how to be a partner with first responder agencies, and how to become a resource for those agencies.
