ACL/FEMA Webinar on Extreme Heat Emergency Preparedness for Organizations

June 18, 2024

Monday, June 24, 2024 | 1:00-2:00 PM ET
Register for the webinar

ACL and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Office of Disability Integration and Coordination (ODIC) invite you to the second event in this year’s webinar series to support individuals with disabilities and older adults — and the organizations that serve them — before, during, and after disasters. This webinar will address the unique issues surrounding extreme heat. Presenters will include leaders from ACL, FEMA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the Administration for Children & Families (ACF).

Extreme heat has emerged as an increasingly prevalent and severe natural hazard, presenting significant risks to public health, safety, critical infrastructure, and agriculture. People with disabilities and older adults are disproportionately affected by extreme heat, and their exposure leads to a higher likelihood of experiencing severe health risks or death.

Learn more about being prepared for extreme heat and hear how federal agencies are working to break down silos and collaborate across systems to provide resources and support.

ASL and CART will be provided. If you need other accommodations to participate, please contact
