EMERGENCY RESPONSE ROLES FOR INTERPRETERS
Current disaster and emergency response planning does not adequately address the needs of limited English proficient (LEP) communities. Disaster scenarios challenge the multiple systems of care and emergency rosponses to effectively reach all citizens, including vulnerable, diverse populations. If you are bilingual/bicultural this event is for you.
This historic event is brought to you by the Language Bank at the Northern Nevada International Center in collaboration with Washoe County Emergency Management.
