Emergency Sheltering and Temporary Housing Issues: Assessing the Disaster Experiences and Preparedness Actions of People with Disabilities to Inform Inclusive Emergency Planning in the United States

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Disasters are typically associated with large-scale dislocations of community residents as damage to public and residential infrastructure forces evacuations (planned or spontaneous). If critical infrastructure is damaged significantly and disaster-related evacuations do occur, then emergency sheltering, temporary housing, and permanent housing repair and replacement become central challenges for communities.
