In February, we reported about the unique project at the West Virginia Assistive Technology System, a part of the Center for Excellence in Disabilities at West Virginia University, that helps first responders and public transit drivers communicate with those who may have communication limitations or for whom English is not their primary language.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency named this project as one of the 2014 FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Award winners. The awards recognize programs and individuals who have taken action to prepare their communities for disasters and helped to make their communities more resilient. These winners were just recognized at the White House as "Champions of Change." Here is the full story.
We are proud of this creative use of TapToTalk and add our voices to those honoring Brittany Valdez, Regina Mayolo, and all those who were part of the Champions of Change team.
