Disasters have a wide-ranging impact on all of us, our organisations, our staff, our communities and the people who use our services and supports.

Join us for the first webinar to focus on the Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness (PCEP) Toolkit.

You will be taken through the Toolkit’s four-step planning process so you can integrate it into your care planning conversations. This is an important conversation for you to be having with people with disability.

At the end of this important session, you will:

  • Understand the four-step process and how to use it in your organisation to enable emergency preparedness with the people you support.
  • Be confident in empowering people with disability to self-assess their capabilities and support needs in emergencies.
  • Connect with emergency services to ensure you and your organisation have accurate, up-to-date information on risk and preparedness.
  • Be able to facilitate person-centred emergency preparedness so that people with disability have a plan and know how they will act together with their support network in an emergency.

You will hear from three peer leaders from the Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN). They will share:

  • their stories of leading their own PCEP plans
  • how they used the toolkit
  • how they are enabling personal preparedness planning through peer support and mentoring.

Stand out from the other organisations with insights into the process and resources you can share with your service users.

A link to the online event will be provided prior to the date.

This interactive session will encourage discussions that will contribute to the development of recommendations for developing workforce capacity in the community, health care and disability service sectors to engage in DIDRR.

These webinars are hosted by Community Services Industry Alliance Ltd and supported by the Queensland Government through the Queensland Disaster Resilience Fund #QDRF and the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors.
