Help improve emergency planning across Oregon to include persons who experience disabilities. Together, we can work toward emergency planning done with and for all Oregonians!


Q: What is the workshop agenda?

A: The exact agenda will be finalized one month prior to the workshop, based on what is learned from the focus groups being held around the state. You can expect to hear from people with disabilities, emergency management professionals, disability advocates, and state agency staff. There will be presentations to the full group and opportunities to work on specific issues in small table groups.


Q: How do I register?

A: You can sign up for in-person or online attendance on this registration page. Note that there are four types of in-person registration. Please choose the option that best describes you.You will receive additional event information via email after registration. Each attendee should complete a separate registration so we can keep an accurate count of participants.




Q. Who should attend?

A. People with disabilities, disability advocates, disability service providers, senior services providers, health and human services professionals, emergency managers, public health emergency professionals, first responders, family and friend advocates.


Q. Will CEUs be available?

A. We will not be offering CEUs.

Q. The announcement says that travel assistance is available. What does this include?

A. We know that holding the workshop in Salem might present a challenge for some people with disabilities to attend. If assistance would help you attend in person, funds are available to reimburse participants with disabilities and their personal assistants for mileage or other forms of transportation, meals, lodging, and costs of additional personal assistance that is not already provided as part of a person’s daily routine. Identify your need for travel assistance through the online registration, by emailing oregon.masscare@state.or.us, or by calling Anna Feigum at 503-510-9361.


Q. Travel is hard for me. Is there a way I can listen remotely?

A. Yes! The workshop video will be streamed on YouTube with captioning and ASL. It will also be archived so you can access it if you are unable to watch on the day of the workshop.


Q. What are you doing to make the workshop accessible? What accommodations are available?

A. We are committed to making participation accessible for everyone who wants to attend, without making assumptions about what people need. Participants should let us know what accommodations they need. Examples include but are not limited to ASL and other language interpretation, CART services, printed materials in alternate formats, physical accessibility, and sensory accommodation. The sooner you can let us know what you need, the more time we will have to ensure it is in place!


Q. What is the desired outcome of this workshop?

A. The desired outcome is to come away with guidance about forming a statewide disability advisory group that is focused on building disability inclusion in all areas of emergency management.


Q. Are you going to have this workshop again next year?

A. Decisions about future activities will be guided by the statewide disability advisory group that will be formed post-workshop.


Q. Are there other ways to get involved?

A. At this time, more needs to be learned. Our hope is that the workshop will produce ideas about the ways people might get involved.

Q. We have a lot of people interested in attending from our office/area. How many should we send?

A. While we appreciate all the interest in attending, we want to make sure that we can accommodate as many people as possible from varying counties, organizations, and agencies. Please consider only sending 1-2 people from your office/area so the workshop can remain diverse.
