In the event of a wide scale emergency, disaster awareness and preparedness saves lives. One of the most important functions of our government is to configure our society’s infrastructure and resources to best respond to emergency situations and mitigate or avoid casualties and injuries. It is imperative government and private organizations know the pitfalls of their emergency programs, the primary challenges faced by individuals in crises, and how best to connect those people to support programs. Especially important in an emergency preparedness program is attention to the unique challenges faced by individuals with disabilities and those with limited access to helping agencies. MDAC has worked with public and private organizations to assess these areas of concern and provide practical solutions that will ensure the safety of the population.
