Thanks to Elizabeth Norton, who sends out the “News” updates on the Disaster Information Management Research Center listserv (see link in the right side column here) for the latest message, which contains lots of great up-to-the-minute resources on emergency preparedness and response. We’d like to highlight one of them particularly: the Accessible Emergency Information website provided by the Northeast Texas Public Health District. The site serves the deaf, blind and limited sight populations by providing both videos and downloadable documents. Documents are available in PDF, large print, as well as in Braille, which translates through the appropriate software to provide printed Braille documents for the end user. Topics include basic emergency preparedness and first aid, infectious diseases and family home care. All the information is free. Take a look–this might be just what you need for helping to provide health and emergency preparedness information to clinicians, patients and patient families.
