Disability Preparedness

While every home should have a disaster preparedness kit and family communications plan, emergency preparedness is even more critical for households with members who have disabilities, functional needs or may need assistance during an emergency.  Throughout April, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency is highlighting the importance of disaster preparedness for people with functional needs as part of its 2013 preparedness campaign.  According to IEMA Director Jonathon Monken, the Ready Illinois website offers a guidebook with preparedness tips for people with visual, cognitive or mobility impairments; people who are deaf or hard of hearing; those who utilize service animals or life support systems; and senior citizens.  The guide, “Emergency Preparedness Tips for Those with Functional Needs”, is available at www.Ready.Illinois.gov.
