Functional, Access, and Medical Needs
Preparing yourself, your home, and your family for a natural or man-made disaster is a difficult feat in itself. Add a disability, functional, access or medical need to that, and the process can become even more demanding and stressful.
While each person's abilities and needs are unique, everyone can take steps to prepare for all kinds of emergencies. Ensure people with functional needs, as well as their friends, family and caregivers, know what to do to before and during an emergency — so that people with functional needs stay safe and are treated with respect.
