A researcher at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta is working on a research project on the use and usability of wireless technology by people with disabilities. They are conducting a survey about two aspects of the way people with disabilities use emergency communications: 1) contacting 911 emergency services like fire, ambulance, police, etc.; and 2) receiving alerts about public emergencies like weather alerts, Amber alerts, etc.
People with disabilities are encouraged to take the survey on-line at: http://www.wirelessrerc.org/news/take-the-2010-Emergency-Communications-survey.html
Or via phone, toll-free at: 1-800-582-6360.
Participants will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Amazon gift card with the drawing to take place during the first week of January 2011. Results of the survey will be published.
