Disaster and disability with Germán Parodi
In this episode, we talk with Germán Parodi, Co-Director of the Partnership for Inclusive Disaster Strategies (The Partnership), about living with a disability and being prepared for a disaster or emergency. We also discuss how disaster response has fallen short when it comes to issues of access, and what the impact has been from past and current disasters, such as Hurricanes Katrina, Maria, and Harvey. Finally, we take a look at the impact on people with disabilities from the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. The Partnership is the only U.S. disability-led organization with a focused mission of equity for people with disabilities and people with access and functional needs throughout all planning, programs, services and procedures before, during and after disasters and emergencies. For more information on The Partnership, go to www.disasterstrategies.org. For more information on being prepared for a disaster, or to get involved in local emergency planning activities, contact LINC.
