Description

The National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) is pleased to provide this online resource guide on emergency management research and people with disabilities. This resource guide is the culmination of cooperative efforts by NIDRR, the Department of Education, the Research Subcommittee of the Interagency Coordinating Council on Emergency Preparedness and Individuals with Disabilities (ICC), and the New Freedom Initiative Subcommittee of the Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR). The guide provides a listing and description of research projects funded by the federal government and nonfederal entities, research recommendations that have come out of conferences on emergency management and disability, and a bibliography of relevant research publications. Each item listed in the table of contents is a hyperlink to its location in the document. This has been done to facilitate navigation throughout the document. Many federal agencies participated in the effort to identify research projects and conference recommendations. In all, we were able to identify 16 federally funded and four nonfederally funded research projects specific to emergency management and people with disabilities. Conference recommendations identified a multitude of knowledge gaps that need to be filled. Clearly there is a need for increased research. It is our hope that this guide will facilitate the development and implementation of a nationwide research agenda on emergency management and people with disabilities, so that we can develop a strong evidence base about the best ways to ensure the safety and security of people with disabilities in emergency and disaster situations.show more
