Free Booklet Addresses Fire Safety for Wheelchair Users

In recognition of Disability Awareness Month and Fire Prevention Week, the United Spinal Association is offering "Fire Safety for Wheelchair Users at Work and at Home," a free booklet addressing fire prevention and planning for all people with mobility impairment, as well as fire safety and building code officials, emergency plan coordinators, building owners, and managers.

"The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there are more than 21.2 million people who have mobility impairments, and by understanding their special evacuation needs, safety can be improved in the workplace and home," said association President Paul Tobin.

The booklet is downloadable from the publications section of www.UnitedSpinal.org and is available in Spanish and English.
