FirstNet – Survey of Individuals with Disabilities' Experiences with First Responders

We want to better understand the experiences of people with disabilities when they interact with first responders (fire, police, or EMS) and what you would like first responders to know about you for any future interactions. If you identify as an individual with hearing, vision, mobility, and dexterity disabilities we especially welcome your participation.

To participate you must be:

  • Over the age of 18
  • Fluent in English
  • Not located in the European Union (EU).

This survey is expected to take 10-20 minutes to complete. If you are interested, please use this link to complete the survey.

Note that there is no compensation for participation.
