In mid-April, the CIL hosted our 2nd Annual Emergency Preparedness Expo for people with disabilities in Alachua County at Santa Fe College, and it was a great day for all! It was attended by nearly 50 participants including 16 vendors (community-based organizations), and multiple emergency management and first responder agencies. Throughout the event, participants with disabilities accessed important resources about how to fully prepare for any type of emergency, which is vital as the hurricane season approaches.
Special thanks to all of our wonderful donors, vendors and speakers who helped make this event possible! We are grateful for your continued support of people with disabilities in Alachua County!
Also, great job to our Emergency Preparedness Team! We appreciate you all so much and all of your hard work to deliver these valuable services for the community we serve!
