Preparing for Special Needs in an Emergency
Being prepared can sometimes be the difference between life and death in an emergency. But, preparing for an emergency can be a more difficult process if you have special needs or are caring for someone with special needs.
The following Public Health booklet will offer valuable tips on how to prepare for an emergency if you are:
- Living with physical impairment
- Deaf/Hard of hearing
- Blind/Low vision
- Living with mental illness
- Living with developmental/cognitive disabilities
- Non-English speaking
Our goal at Public Health is to help all Alabamians prepare for emergencies. We hope this information will help those in Alabama with special needs do that a little bit better.
