ADA Checklist for Emergency Shelters Mobile App
Use the ADA
How does it work?
Checklist for Emergency Shelter mobile app to help provide an emergency shelter that is accessible to people with disabilities. To verify accessibility before deciding on a site for an emergency shelter can involve asking many questions such as those in the ADA Checklist for Emergency Shelter mobile app. For some older buildings, especially those on hilly sites and those that have not been renovated, remodeled, or altered since 1992, before completing the detailed checklist, it may be better to do a pre-test that can rule out a facility with major accessibility problems so available resources can be focused on other locations. The questions within the app will help evaluate whether a facility has such major accessibility barriers. After this first step, buildings that do not have major accessibility problems should be surveyed more thoroughly, using the app to find if any barriers need to be removed to provide an accessible shelter.
