Emergency procedures set for Lucas Co. disabled


Lucas County Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak and a group of disability advocates announced Tuesday the signing of an agreement to set procedures to secure and transport power chairs or assistance dogs following an emergency.

In the past, people have had difficulty retrieving assistance dogs or power chairs, said Tim Harrington, director of the Ability Center of Greater Toledo.

Black & White Cab will now transport power chairs or other equipment to the hospital, and the Lucas County Dog Warden will transport assistance dogs.
