Best of the Best

Post by: Kim Stephens

What are the best practices when it comes to how communities prepare their most vulnerable populations for an emergency or a disaster?  Kansas University Department of Health and Environment, the Research and Training Center on Independent Living and the Kansas Disability and Health Programs have teamed together to highlight four communities in Kansas on their site, aptly labeled, “Best of the Best Practice Sites.”

They state:

This website brings together some exemplary current best practice efforts addressing disaster-related needs of people with disabilities. These are new ideas or fresh approaches using proven methods that can be replicated at the state, county or grassroots level. They are often accomplished by forming collaborations among different local groups, on a shoe-string budget or with small grants.

Do you know of a best-of-the-best practice? Tell us about it.
