Description

Each year thousands of individuals are affected by disasters and emergencies. Examples of these occurrences may include blizzard, fire, flood, hurricane, and tornado as well as man-made disasters such as chemical spills. People with disabilities are disproportionately affected during and after these events. This session will present the role of assistive technology (AT) reuse and professionals in preparing consumers and the community for an emergency.
