The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University

Spanish Emergency Preparedness Training

Spanish speaking families now have access to emergency preparedness information thanks to an IOTI project, Emergency Preparedness for Spanish Speaking Families and Individuals with Disabilities, at the CPD. 

Project staff have provided Spanish translations of emergency preparedness materials for the Latino population.  A Spanish version of the Emergency Preparedness for All Utahns: Preparing Your Family training manual, first developed by another project at the CPD, is now available.  Also, a Spanish version of the Salt Lake Valley Health Department’s Family Emergency Preparedness Guide was prepared.  These two Spanish guides comprise a train-the-trainer curriculum for a workshop that is presented by project staff to community leaders who work with Spanish speaking families.
