Key Features of Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness
The Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness (PCEP) tool is designed for use by community health and disability providers to enable emergency preparedness in others. The PCEP can be used to facilitate meaningful conversations with clients in the community that raise awareness about emergency preparedness to:
- Improve emergency preparedness for people with chronic health conditions and disability
- Reduce negative consequences of disaster triggered by natural hazard emergencies, and
- Improve recovery following a natural hazard event.
Read our user guide to gain a better understanding of person-centred emergency preparedness and pick up practical tips on facilitating meaningful, thorough, and critical conversations.
