Disabilities can impact a person in a variety of ways, both visible and invisible. For people with disabilities and their families, it is important to consider individual circumstances and needs to effectively prepare for emergencies and disasters.
BEFORE AN EMERGENCY
If you or someone close to you has a disability or a functional need, you may have to take additional steps to protect yourself and your family in an emergency. Think about what you can do and what you may need before, during, and after an emergency based on your surroundings, capabilities, and limitations.
