In an effort to enhance the university's existing emergency response plans, an on-line process to assemble a list of university faculty, staff or students with permanent disabilities who may need assistance with evacuating a building in an emergency has been developed.
Self-identification is voluntary. Individuals with a temporary disability who would require assistance in the event of an emergency should notify their area coordinator, residence assistants or supervisor.
Individuals with identified permanent disabilities who believe that they may need assistance during an emergency are strongly encouraged to complete the confidential Self-Identification Questionnaire.
For more information on disability support services or completing this form, visit Pryzbyla Center, Room 201, or e-mail email@example.com. Faculty and staff who have questions should contact the Office of Human Resources at Leahy Hall, Room 208, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
