New! Capacity-Building Toolkit for Including Aging & Disability Networks in Emergency Planning

Feb 07, 2019 | Shannon Davis

NACCHO and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Administration for Community Living, are pleased to announce the launch of the Capacity-Building Toolkit for Including Aging and Disability Networks in Emergency Planning (‘Capacity-Building Toolkit’).

This resource was developed to guide aging and disability networks in increasing their ability to plan for and respond to public health emergencies and disasters. This toolkit helps programs that serve people with access and functional needs, including older adults and people with disabilities, through the emergency planning process of preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation activities. The Capacity-Building Toolkit can help organizations of all types conduct more inclusive emergency planning by facilitating personal preparedness among aging adults and people with disabilities and expanding organizational knowledge of the unique challenges facing these populations during emergencies. The Toolkit can also help emergency managers and public health officials to understand the capabilities and expertise of community-based organizations within the aging and disability network.

Organizations that are new to emergency planning can use this toolkit as an orientation to emergency planning and organizations with established emergency preparedness programs can use this as a resource to further enhance their capabilities.
