This guide provides recommendations for local governments and agencies to help them create disaster preparedness and response programs that account for the needs of people with disabilities, which will bring these programs into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

It suggests ways to handle planning, notification, and evacuation; make sure shelters are accessible; and train staff to deal with service animals, medications, and communication.
