Preparedness and Safety
PWD AFN Outreach Program
Richmond will expand the capacity of Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) to visit and train People with Disabilities and others with Access and Functional Needs (PWD AFN), a group that has historically suffered disproportionally from disasters. Volunteers will work one-on-one with PWD AFN people to create emergency plans, build trust, and create formal support networks. This will greatly improve this population’s disaster resiliency.
