    Integrating Access and Functional Needs Within Emergency Planning
    Taylor gives real, first-hand accounts of the do's and don'ts to integrated planning to help emergency managers identify and understand the needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with access and functional needs before, during, and after disasters.

    Whole Community Engagement
    Taylor shares stories about the process and benefits of engaging with "whole community" partners and helps emergency managers recognize and understand the need to integrate their plans through meaningful, collaborative, proactive engagement.

    Inclusive sheltering: Meeting Medical Needs at Shelters
    Taylor shares personal experiences of visiting shelters that failed to take into account the needs of people with disabilities and how emergency managers can achieve better integrated planning. He highlights successful sheltering operations and outlines how medical needs can be met using integrated shelters models.

    Integration 2.0 - Utilizing Technology to Save Vulnerable Populations
    Taylor urges the emergency management community to apply artificial intelligence and other technology to improving the way we communicate with and assist individuals with access and functional needs - including how local, state, and federal agencies address emergency alerts and notifications.
