yor's disability on council were in attendance as well and members of the public. these were some of the highlights from that meeting. we had a presentation by brenda mass skin and dr. nerven from the homeless outreach team which we usually abbreviate as the hot team. the hot team is a program with the department of public health. the hot teams role is to assist people with disabilities during a disaster. brenda and dr. neville started to address the hot teams mission and by reconstructing service. the hot team is a group who would address everything about the homeless including medical intervention, when someone was ill on the streets. intervention case management and transportation to shelters and health care and transition to supportive housing to stabilization rooms. under the new reconstruction,
the hot team now focuses on the highest users of emergency services. and the people who are the most vulnerable. this is only a subset of the homeless population as a whole. important to keep on training shelters workers to help them make the distinction. james gump from white house and the blind and visually impaired talked about repeating out volunteer youth corp partnered with the red cross to develop a hand book for people who are blind or low vision. this is enhanced information for the visually impaired. what was lovely about this new handbook is that it's printed in a format that has language print and brailled
text. tera connor from the department of public health together they shared a list of list who serve seniors and people with disabilities. the intent with this list is to use the limited number of key and current contacts who can disseminate or distribute information about emergencies and resources to their clients or e list similar to the old phone concept. these key contacts can also send information upwards to the emergency operation center to let emergency managers know what might be needed to serve people with disabilities in the community. tara also talked about the mapping process that identifies dialysis treatment in the city. and places that will provide services when sites are damaged after an emergency or
disaster. collectively the services main -- maintain a 1-800 number plus a number to somebody -- something we would want to publicize on our website and through three -- 311. i have a little bit more here. i was trying to cut this down. the client have one or more cases ranging in multiple disabilities from mental illness to mobility conditions. the hot group works everyday with people living with addiction to
drugs or alcohol and long-term elk -- exposure to their condition. they may need help finding clients who have scattered due to the change in landscape. the client will be transmitted and separated from their support systems including key medications which may include methadone that helps them manage their disability. the cdc talked to supportive workers who may receive services after receiving specialized training. the hot team client will not probably do well in a general population shelter will be ill equipped to provide the support they need. cindy from the department of public health gave a presentation on the
medical shelters and people who require medical daily support which is quite different from person care assistance. a medical shelter would serve those who would require wound care or access to equipment especially equipment like ventilators that require electricity. a medical shelter would been intended to reduce the burden on hospitals which should be to referred to people with acute needs. this is for people with functional needs. we agree that this is important to keep on training shelter workers to make that distinction. the next ddpc meeting in may will be devoted to a more intense conversation with the key list. the purpose is to talk about how we would
activate the list and expectations or agreement for how information will be shared. this concludes the ddc report finally, the next meeting friday may 1 from 1:30 to 3:30 in city hall here. >> thank you. next we have public comment on items not on the agenda. mr. brown? >> thank you. i want to thank the disability commission, the mta for these new boxes that are disabled accessible and seating for seniors and used in a number of route. i saw a poster on a two command bus the
other day who say they plan to include these in the next few years. i hope they service all the people. now bad news, i was at the library 2 weeks ago and noticed on the men's floor that the two stalls that served accessible people are out of order and two2 units were out of order there. i would hope that the library, i know the funding is over for the year now but i hope they can get funding to maintain these facilities for the comfort and safety of all people going to the library. i commented on this a few years ago and you did a great job in getting this rectified. i hope you can do it again for the safety and comfort of
the public. thank you. thank you, is there any other public comment at this time? come forward. >> hi, my name is keith dennis. i'm a long time resident of san francisco. god bless you auchlt what i want to speak about is the roads that need to be more accessible to people with disabilities. that street i'm talking about is divisadero street
