“Fire and life safety may be more important to people with disabilities than others because of the barriers to accessing information about emergencies and then navigating the physical barriers within the built environment, says Allan Fraser, Senior Building Code Specialist and staff liaison to NFPA’s presidential Disability Access Review and Advisory Committee (DARAC) at NFPA. “With each passing day I marvel at the new technological innovations and advancements, particularly those that improve access to information, communications, and the ability of people with disabilities to be more empowered with respect to their own safety.”
