Access & Functional Needs (AFN)

The mission of the Access and Functional Needs (AFN) Coalition is to enhance the preparation of individuals with disabilities or access and functional needs (AFN) to survive and recover from emergencies and disasters.

The AFN Coalition supports agencies, organizations and families who have responsibilities for people with AFN in identifying needs and making emergency plans that include ways to meet those needs during and following a disaster.  We want to involve individuals with disabilities in the planning process as much as possible in order to get a varied perspective of what will be needed.
The Southwest Utah Public Health Department (SWUPHD) invites you to participate in the AFN Coalition.  Lets help each other and our community increase our emergency preparedness!
