Apply Now: Disability Emergency Management Advisory Council
The Disability Emergency Management Advisory Council (DEMAC) of Oregon is a new group that will help ensure Oregon is prepared to meet the needs of people with disabilities in disasters. DEMAC will advise state agencies on disability-accessible ways to keep communities safe before, during and after disasters.
DEMAC will have up to 25 primary members (who may have designated alternates), two-thirds of them people with disabilities, and also will include public health and human services professionals, disability service professionals, parents or guardians of people with disabilities and emergency managers. DEMAC will also have general members who get updates about the council and can volunteer for short-term, remote subcommittee work.
