Disability Task Force by Reid Jaffe

The Florida Disability Task Force commissioned a survey of persons with disabilities in SW and SE Florida to obtain information related to access to health care services. The surveys are identifying perosns with disabilities who are willing to participate in hospital-specific, local, and regional disaster exercises, as evaluators, observers, and participants. Their presence will lead to a more realistic experience for law enforcement, first responders, and first receivers. The results of the survey will be turned into an educational module that will be distributed to Florida's hospitals, to increase their sensitivity to and ability to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities.
