Image of Media for the Course on Disability Evacuation Plans - Are you ready?


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that all emergency evacuation plans include measures to ensure the safe evacuation of people with disabilities.

Our step-by-step program guides you through the creation of your own Disability Evacuation Plan, addressing issues that can mean the difference between life and death.

We provide an in-depth training video/DVD demonstrating techniques for evacuating people with visual, hearing, mobility and cognitive/emotional impairments.

Order form (in PDF format) For those unable to view a PDF document, please feel free to Contact Us to order via phone.

View a 3-minute presentation to introduce yourself to the issues that can affect the safety of the disabled community in your building.

“It could happen tomorrow, it could happen next week, it could happen next year, but they will keep trying. And we have to be prepared…”

Vice President Dick Cheney May 19, 2002

New Threats, New Liabilities

To the old threats of fire and natural disasters, there is a new threat- terrorism.

For the owners, managers, and tenants of facilities where the disabled live, work, shop, travel, and find recreation, there are threats of another kind: lawsuits and liabilities that could be ruinous.

Do you have a plan for evacuating people from your facility? Of course you do. Does it effectively address the safe evacuation of people with disabilities? It better. The ADA requires that your plan ensures that people with disabilities are safely evacuated from facilities
