The objective of this thesis is to examine the role of municipal government with regard to disaster planning for individuals with access and functional needs. Oftentimes, a heavy reliance on county and higher levels of government occurs. The purpose herein is to identify why municipalities should create innovative policy solutions for their jurisdictions as part of a collaborative, synthesized approach within their counties. As the first responders in a major disaster, both municipal and county governments play the critical local role within Homeland Security. Conclusively, recommendations are made regarding application for supplementing and integrating planning and preparedness efforts for the best possible outcome.
