Second District Supervisor Gregg Hart, recently elected as 2020 chairman of the Board of Supervisors, has said he will devote time monthly on the board’s agenda to highlight various aspects of emergency preparedness and response.
“With the recent two-year anniversary of the Thomas Fire and debris flow, we are reminded how frequently we have experienced disasters locally. Preparation is key, and I plan to use my position as chair to assist our residents in preparing themselves and their families in the case of an emergency or natural disaster in our region,” Hart said.
To kick off this endeavor, Hart invited Dani Anderson, Executive Director of the Independent Living Resource Center, to discuss emergency preparedness as it relates to those with disabilities and seniors.
“I applaud Supervisor Hart’s commitment to this issue,” Anderson said. “Emergency preparedness as it relates to those with disabilities and seniors is not one-size-fits-all.”
The Independent Living Resource Center’s mission is to promote independent living and full access for people with disabilities through advocacy, education and action.
