Tips for First Responders
Many first responders have requested quick, easy-to-use procedures for assisting persons with disabilities in an emergency. These tip sheets provide information about many types of disabilities you can use during emergencies as well as routine encounters. They are not meant to be comprehensive, but contain specific information that you can read quickly either before or while you are actually responding to an incident. These are also useful for CERT members. You can also order a 14-page, color-coded, laminated 4.5 x 5.5-inch field guide from the University of New Mexico Center for Development & Disability.
