On September 27, 2017, at 2:20 pm EST there was a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Inclusive Technologies (Wireless RERC) is conducting a survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the visual and audio elements of the 2017 EAS test message. For com02parative analyses of similarities and differences in access needs, we would like people with and without disabilities to take the survey.
Note that no personally identifiable information is being collected. Survey results will be shared with federal agencies in efforts to inform policymakers with empirical research about the access experiences and expectations of people with disabilities.
Please take a few minutes to complete our survey at the following link: Wireless RERC Survey - 2017 Nationwide EAS Test, and share this call for participation with other organizations, listservs, and social networks.
If you need assistance completing the survey, please contact Salimah LaForce at 404-894-8297 or Salimah.LaForce@cacp.gatech.edu.
