https://phys.org/news/2019-12-ways-people-disabilities-involved-disaster.html Good afternoon all, A UN researcher did some research on subject. In the US, it's now Federal law to provide for the disabled to participate in the planning, the response and the recovery stages. Much work needs to be done - as if I need to say this. FEMA has an Office of Disability Something...forgot full name. Marci Roth was first Director of this office. They have good workshops. The linked article is flavored more as a benevolent program to help the disabled. The US Responder programs are more "Just shut up and pass the rope and make a report entry" type. The typical American wheel chair bound won't be going out with the river SAR team but can realistically be found at the heasd shed tent working the radios. Note that the article links "aging people" with the disabled. Maybe in Indonesia, Brunei and Malaysia to "inform the authorities about the living conditions..." is productive but here it's like yelling at hurricane winds. Recently was at a seminar with some NGO disabled folks present. The BEST statement of the 3 day workshop came from a blind woman. There was an informal "vote" to cancel a large lunch at end of program. This blind person said the lunch was important. YES ! We can't speak freely at the audio-visual recorded programs. For a basic rule: 99% of knowledge obtained before and after the meeting.
