Wildfires, floods, and other emergencies impact our disability communities every year. People with disabilities have their own strengths. They have built community networks and resources they rely on. These communities also have specific needs during emergencies. Governments and communities must prepare for crisis together. Collaboration builds a mutual understanding of community resources, networks and needs. Working together allows government and communities to build a shared response.  It ensures people with disabilities can contribute their strengths, while receiving support as they leverage and restore critical resources, and in meeting specific needs.

What is DEMAC?

DEMAC advises State of Oregon government agencies. They focus on the needs of people with disabilities before, during, and after emergencies and disasters. Three State agencies support DEMAC:

  • Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS)
  • Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division (OHA-PHD)
  • Oregon Department of Emergency Management (ODEM)

Who can join?

DEMAC members are people with all types of abilities.

  1. People with disabilities
  2. Family members of people with disabilities
  3. Disability services professionals
  4. State and local public health and emergency management professionals
  5. Native American/Tribal government representatives
  6. Volunteers who work on short-term projects

The goal is to have 25 members who represent communities across Oregon. Two-thirds should be people with disabilities or their family members. People from diverse communities across Oregon are encouraged to apply.
