Data from Disaster and Emergency Preparedness: Report of the 2006 Regional Census and Survey of Persons with Disabilities
The 9/11 tragedy, continued terrorism threats, and the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes caused human service providers to assess emergency preparedness of Floridians with disabilities. The Disaster and Emergency Preparedness: Report of the 2006 Regional Census and Survey Persons with Disabilities summarizes the findings of an initiative of the Florida Department of Health and the Taskforce for Persons with Disabilities and Preparedness to gather information on the issues faced by people with disabilities during catastrophic events, and to serve as a basis for future disaster and emergency planning. A census and survey was administered to 2,404 people with disabilities selected from counties in Local Health Councils.
