Integrating People with Disabilities and Access/Functional Needs
The City of Los Angeles is committed to understanding and meeting the needs of the "Whole Community" . . . before, during, and after a disaster.
As a disaster service worker (DSW), you will be providing assistance to people in need and may encounter a variety of individuals -- including people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs.
The following resources are meant to provide you with some guidelines, videos, and tips to better interact and communicate with individuals from the Whole Community.
