WS140. Engaging with Your Human Services Department in All Phases of Disaster

Responding to disaster comes down to people helping people. Who better to include in your planning than your county Human Services/Social Services Department? Hear from multiple county Human Services program experts on the creative and innovative ways they partner with their local Emergency Management.  Discussion topics include homeless planning implications, utilizing behavioral and mental health data and resources, and engaging in short- and long-term recovery.  Understanding the programs and services Human Services provides during blue sky can help strengthen and enhance grey sky response.
