Internal Guidelines

The Department of Transportation implemented the Departmental Guidelines on Emergency Preparedness and Individuals with Disabilities on August 12, 2003. The guidelines require that each of DOT's Operating Administrators account for the unique needs of those with disabilities in their emergency preparedness plans. Additionally, the guidelines call for the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the development of these plans.
