Accessible Emergency Notification and Communication:
State of the Science Conference

Research and Policy Recommendations

One of the goals of the conference was to develop a list of research topics that can be helpful to funding agencies that are considering how to use research dollars to improve access to emergency communications. This document lists research topics that were specifically mentioned at the conference, provided as written comments by participants, or derived from the information and issues raised. A list of suggestions for information and training projects as well as policy recommendations based on conference information are also included. The recommendations do reflect the authors' judgments and attempts to summarize; therefore this should not be considered a consensus document from the conference. The recommendations are geared toward accessibility issues. We did not include other research topics that have general application to emergency communications, although some of these would also benefit people with disabilities along with everyone else.
