ADA Emergency Preparedness

The University of North Texas is constantly striving to strengthen its capability to help individuals with disabilities prepare for emergencies. The Office of Emergency Management & Safety Services is dedicated to providing people with disabilities access to preparedness resources. In addition to the provided resources, persons with disabilities should take into consideration what their particular resources and requirements are when preparing for an emergency.
