Abstract

Emergencies range from unexpected injuries to natural disasters. Populations with access and functional needs are more likely than other populations to experience adverse health outcomes during an emergency. The three-county Appalachian District Health Department engaged a collaborative array of community partners to build an all-inclusive, all-hazards emergency plan. Tabletop and full-scale exercises demonstrated the plan's ability to meet the needs of community members with access and functional needs.
