ADA National Network Learning Session: National Fire Protection Association's Emergency Evacuation Planning for People with Disabilities
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."
This webinar will review the 2nd edition of the Emergency Evacuation Planning Guide for People with Disabilities, which helps people with disabilities, their employers, building owners and managers, and others develop emergency evacuation plans that integrate the needs of people with disabilities. This guidance can be used in all buildings, whether old or new.
Presenter: Allan Fraser, Senior Building Code Specialist on the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) staff.
