But what happens when a school cannot accommodate students with physical disabilities through the normal sheltering and evacuation procedures? Just as schools are committed to meeting the educational requirements of students with physical disabilities, schools should be committed to develop a plan to evacuate and shelter in place these students during an emergency event. Because of the unique risks and circumstances associated with moving students who have limited mobility or complete immobility, administrators should take the following factors into consideration when making evacuation plans: • Physical conditions that may create additional risks for students with disabilities if they have to be moved rapidly • Special equipment or medication that must accompany students with disabilities • The use of stairways, as opposed to elevators, during an evacuation • Evacuation routes that require students to traverse terrain that could be affected by bad weather • Evacuations that may require students and staff to travel a considerable distance to be clear of the danger • The assignment of staff members to assist students with special needs during evacuation and in-place sheltering • The supervision of students whose teachers have been temporarily reassigned to assist students with physical disabilities • The special circumstances associated with cocurricular activities and events—such as crowd movement—and the availability of sheltering locations and evacuation routes from auditoriums, gymnasiums, and stadiums • Special considerations for students with physical disabilities who may also have emotional and cognitive impairments 01-Brunner-45663:01-Brunner 7/29/2008 12:05 PM Page 27 Planning • Schedule and class modifications made throughout the school year that will affect the location of students with physical disabilities during the school day • Classrooms that, by their specific design, cannot be relocated to a ground level DEVELOPING AN INDIVIDUALIZED EVACUATION AND SHELTERING PLAN Every student with a disability who could be adversely affected during an evacuation or in-place sheltering event should have an individualized evacuation and sheltering plan (IESP).

It may be ill advised to physically carry a student with a disability during a practice evacuation drill. However, the student should be present during the drill so the student will understand the proper procedure. When necessary, a mannequin or dummy can be used during a practice drill; the local fire department is a good resource for obtaining such an item. Staff members who are assigned to move students should be reminded that these individuals may have limited movement in some limbs and may be unable to protect themselves during a fall.
