Evacuation Planning for the Vulnerable and Disabled

Client: New York City Emergency Management Department (NYCEMD)


M. Davis and Company, Inc. was recently engaged to support a needs analysis for the NYCEMD to determine a statistically significant measure of demand for government administered transportation services for people with disabilities and access and functional needs (DAFN).


M. Davis and Company, Inc. was responsible for:

  1. Background research and community engagement;
  2. Development of the survey instrument;
  3. Execution of the survey;
  4. Consolidation of the data;
  5. Analysis of the data; and,
  6. Reporting of findings.


This initiative and the study involved will inform the City’s decision of whether and how to revise and update current evacuation plans – specifically the Homebound Evacuation Operations (HEO) plan – for people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs.
