Description

Good communication between first responders and individuals with disabilities is critical when responding to emergencies. First responders need to know as much as possible about a situation to make proper decisions and individuals must know what is happening to respond accordingly to situations, obtain assistance, etc. Join us as we �build a line of communication� between first responders and those with disabilities to enhance safety.
