You never know when you might need to be prepared for an emergency, and having a disability makes it even more important to plan ahead.

“You prepare. For yourself, for those you love, for whatever the day may bring."

3 steps to for emergency preparedness:

  1. Be informed of what types of disasters can happen where you live or travel
  2. Make a plan to know where you would go in an emergency (including anyone who might be needed to assist you)
  3. Build a kit that contains the specific things you need to survive for a few days

These tips are prepared by the US government’s FEMA program, but are applicable to anyone, as emergency preparedness is important for your safety.
