Emergency Evacuation Planning

Whether it is at home or at work, special planning may be required to evacuate people with disabilities.  As our workforce ages and as people live longer, the likelihood of your emergency plan needing to deal with evacuating someone with disabilities will increase. The planning guide and checklist from NFPA are useful for almost any situation. 

Remember that disabilities may include limitations in movement and mobility, reduced hearing or diminished eyesight, so you may need to account for all of those in your plan.
