From Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy to the wildfires of California and floods of South Carolina, there’s been one thing in common: The Red Cross hasn’t understood disability, and that has put lives at risk.
About Paul TimmonsA fierce critic of how the American Red Cross serves people with disabilities, Paul Timmons was recently appointed the Red Cross Disability Integration Coordinator. When asked how that happened, he quotes a Star Trek proverb, “Only Nixon could go to China.” Timmons lives with his wife, Kelly, aboard their yacht, the Tumbleweed, Too, which is anchored in St. Johns, South Carolina.
