Industry Day: FEMA Accessible Travel Trailers

FEMA will present the current Accessible Travel Trailers requirement, including the Accessible TTs designs, explain FEMA’s role during a disaster, and answer any questions from Industry.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA, or the Agency) is hosting an Industry Day Event on Thursday, May 18, 2023, to inform local businesses of the upcoming Accessible Travel Trailers requirement, obtain industry input, and request best practices in developing efficient processes.

This is an opportunity for Industry to let Government know their capabilities or provide their professional input. For additional details please review the attached Draft Statement of Work (SOW) and Accessible TTs Designs.
