United Spinal Association, with funding assistance from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, has developed a free training program on “Fire Safety for Wheelchair Users at Work and at Home”.
This training program is designed to educate people with disabilities, fire safety and building code officials, emergency plan coordinators, building owners and supervisors, employers and fire marshals of the unique aspects of life safety for people with disabilities.
By understanding the special evacuation needs, people with mobility impairments and first responders can improve their chances of evacuating their workplace or home safely. This brochure will emphasize the evacuation protocol for wheelchair users from these two areas.
Instructions The Fire Safety For Wheelchair Users At Work & At Home training program can be used as an online training device or can be downloaded in its entirety for off-line group training.
