Through our partnership with Volunteer Canada, we have trained 20 trainers from disability organizations and volunteer centres to deliver our community training in emergency planning for people with disabilities.

The training manual we created, Prepare to Survive – Prepare to Help, is full of exercises and resources for community groups who want to play a role in emergency planning and response in their communities.

Now, PowerPoint presentations have been prepared to help trainers use the manual.
