CCD Emergency Management Principles

  ACTIVITIES
Emergency Management Task Force
CCD Principles for Disability Inclusive Emergency and Disaster Management
There are over 61 million adults with disabilities living in communities throughout the United States and that figure does not include children with disabilities and individuals with disabilities residing in institutions, nursing homes or prisons. Most of these individuals have encountered or will experience a natural or human caused disaster during their lifetimes. Recent hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes, floods and tornados have brought attention to the severe gaps in disability inclusion when it comes to the nation’s systems of emergency preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation with regard to catastrophic disasters.
