The Kitsap County Accessible Communities Advisory Committee is pleased to announce that two portable ramps are now available to borrow for those who need to improve physical accessibility for wheelchair users on a short-term basis. The trifold, aluminum ramps measure five feet and seven feet and fold into easy-to-carry suitcases.
The ramps were purchased with a grant from the Governor’s Committee on Disability Issues and Employment and are maintained by the ARC of the Peninsulas of Bremerton that coordinates the borrowing program, on behalf of the Accessible Communities committee.
To reserve a ramp, contact Tari Quiocho, senior program manager at ARC of the Peninsulas, 360-801-4539 or email TQuiocho@penarc.org.
The Accessible Communities Advisory Committee was established to support disability awareness and access for people with disabilities through technical assistance and other resources allocated in the Accessible Communities Act. The committee also develops local initiatives and activities to promote greater awareness of disability issues and acceptance, involvement and access for persons with disabilities in Kitsap communities. New members are always welcome. Visit the committee’s website to apply.
