NFPA Releases New Edition of Guide to Assist People with Disabilities
BY KEVIN CARR
NFPA has released a new edition of a guide that helps the disabled community prepare for emergency evacuation.
As I mentioned briefly in a blog post earlier this year, NFPA had been working with several stakeholders to publish an update to this important resource, which is written by the NFPA Disability Access Review and Advisory Committee (DARAC) with assistance from NFPA staff and others.
