We will notify employees, potential hires and the public that accommodations can be made
during recruitment and hiring. We will notify staff that supports are available for those
with disabilities. We will put in place a process to develop individual accommodation
plans for employees. Where needed, we will also provide customized emergency

People with disabilities and their service animals are welcome. Service animals are
allowed on our premises in areas that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have
the support person with them, with no admission fee charged to the support person. Staff
will notify support workers of this policy upon entrance.
