The Community Emergency Preparedness Information Network (CEPIN) assists in developing and maintaining relationships between the emergency management and special needs communities.  Through accessible training offerings, CEPIN allows for a greater understanding in responding to disability communities when man-made and natural disasters occur.  The program was founded in 2004 when FEMA awarded a TDI a grant to provide training for emergency managers in the areas of responding to deaf and hard-of-hearing consumers. In 2007, DHS awarded TDI/CEPIN an additional grant to develop a Web-based training program for emergency managers that focuses on all disability communities.  This training program is scheduled to be delivered in early 2010.
