People with Special Needs

People with special needs should include those considerations in their emergency and preparedness planning based on the capabilities and limitations they believe they will have after the disaster. It is important to remember that the usual methods of support and assistance may not be available for some time during an evacuation and after the disaster has occurred.

Make a personal disaster plan to help organize necessary information and activities during and after a disaster and share your disaster plan with your support network. Keep copies of your disaster plan in your disaster supplies kit, car, wallet (behind driver's license or primary identification card), wheelchair pack or at work, etc. Other action steps to prepare for disaster are listed below:
