This site is an introduction to the issue for disabled people and their advocates. It is a grassroots effort developed by people with disabilities who have come together via the internet. None of the information is intended to be legal or medical advice -- we are simply sharing our experiences as disabled people who want to continue to live independently.
Prompt response by fire and medical emergency crews is also critical to many disabled people, so we include information on the slowdown to emergency services. Finally, for general information, we link to a few engineering sites.
