Evacuation and Transportation in Emergencies for People with Disabilities

Date: Thursday, September 26, 2013
Description: Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities Webinar Series

Often one of the most difficult issues in a coming emergency or disaster is the evacuation and transportation of people with disabilities. This presentation will discuss the access and functional needs issues that must be considered by individuals, jurisdictions, emergency managers, and transportation planners in planning evacuation and transportation in emergencies. Gap analysis tools will be shared and a review of resources provided.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, the participants will be able to identify appropriate resources to assist in planning for, and with, adults and children with disabilities and others with access and functional needs for evacuation and transportation.
