By STEPHEN M. THAL & WILLIAM H. AUSTIN, An Article Out Loud Flashback from the Domestic Preparedness Journal, May 22, 2013. July marks the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This 2013 article describes the challenges that people with disabilities faced after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The storm left many people without basic resources, but less publicized was the fact that a number of citizens suffering from various disabilities were transported without their wheelchairs and/or other equipment and devices required to meet their needs. Trainers with real-world experiences began helping first responders lessen the impact on these citizens in future disasters. Narrated by MacGregor Stephenson.
