Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities

Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities

When it comes to emergencies, basic needs for survival are the same for everyone: first aid, food, clean water, batteries, shelter, and communication.

While individual needs and circumstances vary, one thing is for sure: it’s not a question of if, but when an emergency will happen. Take steps today to prepare for tomorrow!

If you or someone you know has a disability, basic needs can also include:

  • power for electric-dependent equipment
  • accessible shelter and transportation
  • back up personal care
  • provisions for service animal
  • medication and medical supplies
