ADA National Network Learning Session: National Fire Protection Association's Emergency Evacuation Planning for People with Disabilities

September 26, 2016

General advice about major disasters says each of us will very likely need to take care of ourselves for the first 24 to 72 hours. The former chair of the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Disability Access and Review Committee said " Every one of us should be prepared to take some responsibility for our own safety regardless of our circumstances." To that end, the NFPA has created the Emergency Evacuation Planning Guide for People with Disabilities which provides assistance to people with disabilities, their employers, building owners and managers, and others as they develop emergency evacuation plans that integrate the needs of people with disabilities. This guidance can be used in all buildings, whether old or new. This webinar will review the 2nd edition of this Planning Guide and provide major topics and updated materials, and is hosted by PHI's Pacific ADA Center as part of the ADA National Network/FEMA Webinar Series, Emergency Management and Preparedness-Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities.

Please note: This webinar has been rescheduled to October 27th, 2016.  more
