Building a More Inclusive Disaster Response

The Community Emergency Access Assessment is a countywide survey to help identify the needs of people with disabilities and other types of access and functional needs that may impact them during a disaster. This information can bring more inclusivity into emergency planning. The ultimate goal is for all community members to have equitable access to emergency information, resources, and services.

This assessment will help anyone who experiences barriers to accessing disaster planning, response, and recovery efforts. These barriers may include language, technology, transportation, advanced age, a low income, disabilities, and physical access to resources and safety.

Why it is important

Disaster impacts some members of our community more than others. By understanding the needs and gaps, we can work together to increase personal and community preparedness as well as inform emergency planning and resources that are inclusive and accessible.
