PrepTalks: We Succeed or Fail Together

In his PrepTalk, “We Succeed or Fail Together!” Vance Taylor shares the personal story of a shelter that failed to take into account the needs of people with access and functional needs and how emergency managers can achieve better integrated planning. Taylor explains the importance of understanding the communities we serve and the need to integrate people with access and functional needs within each phase of planning for communication, sheltering, evacuation, and medical needs.

Taylor is the Chief of the Office of Access and Functional Needs in the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.
