Emergency preparedness for the deaf

Published: May 14, 2013, 1:21 pm, by Ryan Handy

The Independence Center will be hosting an emergency preparedness session for the deaf this Friday afternoon.

The center’s  “deaf chat” will feature officials from the city of Colorado Springs and El Paso County, who will discuss how to prepare for a disaster–namely, a flood or a fire. Interpreters will be provided.

The chat starts at 3 p.m. and goes until 5 p.m.,  at The Independence Center, 729 S. Tejon Street. Attendees are encouraged to bring food to share, but drinks and cookies will be provided. For more information, contact Matthew Ruggles at 719-602-0872, or mruggles@theindependencecenter.org.
