Federal Emergency Management Agency

Including The Deaf Community

Main Content
During disasters, live television broadcasts deliver important emergency information to the local residents. Because these briefings and announcements are live, written close captioning is not available.

MariDon Sorum has been providing Sign Language from the beginning of the disaster. - Location: Minot, ND
