June 22 Meeting – Emergency Preparedness Part II!
If you enjoyed our previous seminar on emergency services, this is Part II! The fabulous Richard Ray is going to tell us what systems are already in place in case of an emergency. Even better, what’s available in the future. He’s here to listen to us, hear our concerns, and implement better systems.
Evolving technology creates more options for individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, or have speech or cognitive disabilities for effective communication during emergencies. The presentation will cover the Federal Communications Commission and Department of Justice’s regulations to facilitate accessible 9-1-1 calling and accessible emergency notifications. Emergency communications options available today and in the future will also be discussed, such as real-time text, short message service, and other communication modalities.
Time: 9:30am for light fare and shmoozing, 10:00-noon for program and other HLAA announcements.
Location: Sherman Oaks Library -14245 Moorpark St, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
