Accessibility and Preparedness
The Department of Homeland Security provides information about readiness for those with disabilities and access and functional needs, including tips and emergency planning guidance. Also, visit disasterassistance.gov for even more resources and tips.
Temple’s Office of Disability Resources and Services can be a great resource for students on campus.
In addition, the Institute on Disability (IoD) in the College of Education and Human Development at Temple University learns from and works with people with disabilities and their families to create and share knowledge, change systems and society, and promote self-determined lives. IoD recognizes that disability is a natural part of the human experience. With regard to emergency preparedness, IoD’s mission is to develop and execute research, create programs, disseminate information, and deliver services and training to, with and for people with disabilities about emergency preparedness in the home, work and community.
