Integrating Access and Functional Needs within Active Shooter Awareness Guidance Organization: California Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Office of Access and Functional Needs

Following the active shooter attack in 2015 at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, initial reports indicated it was an assault on the disabled. Though we later learned this was not the case; the thought of an attack on individuals with disabilities raised serious concerns over the current lack of guidance regarding the access and functional needs (AFN) considerations associated with an active shooter attack. To address this issue, the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services brought together a work group consisting of representatives from law enforcement, the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities, emergency managers, the California Specialized Training Institute and other disability stakeholders to update its Active Shooter Awareness Guidance. The revised guidance, which now integrates access and functional needs considerations, has been completed and is now publicly available! A copy is attached for your use and reference. We encourage you to share it with your stakeholders.
