National Preparedness Month - Sep 1, 2015

Posted by: hamiltonddsadmin

September is National Preparedness Month, and all people, including those with disabilities, are encouraged to plan for how to stay safe and communicate during the disasters that can affect your community.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has many resources about emergency preparedness for people with disabilities, including a brochure on how to plan for an emergency and an emergency supply checklist.

The American Red Cross also has a helpful video about disaster preparedness for people with disabilities. You can also find more information on the safety section of our website.
