Dear Colleagues;

Marcie Roth, Director of FEMA’s Office of Disability Integration and
Coordination, would like to share the message below from The Rehabilitation
Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies (Wireless RERC).  Two
years after the first survey on emergency communications, the Wireless RERC
thought now would be a great time to conduct another survey that included
all the technological governmental changes being implemented.  Please
forward this announcement to all that may share an interest in this request
for feedback.



The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies
(Wireless RERC) is asking for individuals to take its new online survey on
emergency communications. The survey questions address emergency services,
public alerts and warnings, and social media use during emergencies.
The Wireless RERC conducted this survey once before, almost two years ago.
Because technology is changing so rapidly and new government rules are
being implemented, RERC think it's the right time to conduct the survey
again. The data will be of great interest to regulatory authorities and
other professionals working to improve emergency response and disaster
relief for people with disabilities.
New to this version of the survey is the inclusion of a question for the
respondent to identify if he/she is a caregiver. In this way, the RERC
hopes to collect data on the caregiver experience as it relates to
emergency communications technologies and behaviors, as well as the
experiences of individuals with disabilities.
