About the Discussion

The American with Disabilities Act has been in effect for more than 26 years, but emergency evacuation plans for people with physical disabilities have changed little. The discussion will focus on current strategies for evacuation of individuals with disabilities in fire emergencies, and new concepts that can be implemented.
