Self-assessment of emergency preparedness for people with disability: A report on the field application of the Individual Self Assessment Tool – Emergency Preparedness (ISAT-EP)

Source(s):  University of Sydney

This report details the field testing of the Individual Self-Assessment Tool – Emergency Preparedness (ISAT-EP), as part of the Disabilty Inclusive Disaster Preparedness project in New South Wales, Australia. This field test aimed to evaluate the utility of this tool from the perspective of people with disability and stakeholders in the disability, community and emergency management sectors as well as generate suggestions for improvement.

The project team field tested the ISAT-EP as one element of the Phase 2 Local Emergency Preparedness Workshops and continued this in Phase 3 of the project conducted in the three study locations. In total 60 field test participants engaged in the review with nearly half (49%) being people with disability. Participants in this field test application provided very useful suggestions for improvement of the ISAT-EP, including on the use of language, accessible formats and the role of local communities.
