Based on its ongoing policy and research work in the area of homeland security, NCD identified a major gap in the government's knowledge base.This term is one that is commonly defined very specifically by state laws or regulations. States that have specifically provided links to definitions or information regarding this term through special CDS customizations content include: PA, KS, MN.When facilities have been adapted so that persons with physical or mental handicaps may be able to use them.These duties included interacting with stakeholders regarding emergency planning requirements and relief efforts in case of disaster; revising and updating guidelines for government disaster emergency preparedness; evaluating a national training program to implement the national preparedness goal; assessing the nation's prevention capabilities; identifying and sharing best practices; coordinating and maintaining a National Disaster Housing Strategy; developing accessibility guidelines for communications and programs in shelters and recovery centers; and helping all levels of government in the planning of evacuation facilities that house people with disabilities.Congress provided 0,000 in the FY 2007 appropriations bill to enable NCD to fulfill our assigned duties under the PKEMRA.Example: an "accessible van" means that there is a wheel chair lift and handrails so that persons with disabilities may be able to get in and out of the van.
