Emergency responders, including law enforcement and fire safety officials, impact the lives and safety of all Americans. Training for emergency responders allows them to meet people�s needs safely, efficiently, and well. This presentation reviews survey research conducted with emergency responders in Connecticut examining what training they received in interacting with individuals with disabilities and how that training was given, in an attempt to gather information to improve emergency responder training.
