The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently published a new Reference Guide to help those with disabilities, such as cerebral palsy.
The guide outlines the requirements and standards for those living with disabilities throughout the country.
The Reference Guide is said to enable emergency planners, responders and government agencies to efficiently help those with special needs in the case of a disaster.
FEMA began working on the guide in wake of Hurricane Katrina.
The guide is the first in a series of disability-related guidelines, which have been produced by the agency.
“FEMA is committed to ensuring that its programs and emergency operations meet the needs of those living with disabilities in the United States,” explains FEMA Administrator R. David Paulison.
FEMA officials believe that this guide is the first in a series of necessary steps meant to provide the disabled in the country with the care they need and deserve.
Those with special needs and their caretakers are given information and support regarding housing, evacuation, and communications in times of emergency.
