Special Needs

People with special needs:

Transporting the elderly or disabled during an emergency can be difficult. Planning for this transportation should be one of the first things you consider when preparing for an emergency.
Do you require additional or special vehicles?
Who can you call to help?
People with disabilities should register with the Fire Department or Emergency Management Office so help can be provided quickly during an emergency.

Medications are and essential part of life for many people, and in many cases lack of medication can become life threatening. Always make sure you have a minimum of a five-day supply on hand in an easy to take pouch or container.

Special Dietary needs must also be taken into consideration. Many people cannot exist without eating special foods and liquids. Keep an adequate supply of these foods and liquids on hand.

Many medications, foods and liquids must be refrigerated. If forced to leave your home, or if the power is out for an extended time, you need to plan for a method to keep these items cool. Keep a small cooler handy and always keep a 10# bag of ice in your freezer.

Don't forget other special needs, such as diapers, heavier than normal clothing, hearing aid batteries, wheelchair batteries, oxygen, specialty medical supplies, etc. you should keep an adequate supply of these items on hand-ready for the next emergency.

Remember that if you must evacuate your home it might be days before you can return. Also, many of the stores where you can normally purchase these items may be closed or have deleted essential supplies. Once you leave, you may not be able to get them for some time, Be prepared!
