September Marks National Preparedness Month

September Marks National Preparedness Month

How people with disabilities can get ready for a disaster during National Preparedness Month. 

You don’t just deal with your disability; you’ve learned how to live a full life with it! You are aware, though, that it does change the way you need to handle some situations.

Particularly, a disability can make responding to a disaster look very differently. Fortunately, September is National Preparedness Month, so it presents the perfect time to prepare yourself and a support team for whatever life brings your way!

Prepare for a disaster by using this guide.

  • Make A Plan: Write out how you’ll respond to different disasters, from fires to floods to power outages. List emergency contact information and draw maps with different routes out of town that you know you can utilize.
  • Make A Team: So you don’t have to get out on your own, share your emergency plan with key people in your life. Those who live and work near you are especially important to debrief.
  • Make A Kit: Getting out ahead of a disaster becomes much easier if you can quickly grab a bag and go. Make an emergency kit in advance.

During a disaster, the last things you’ll want to have to worry about are your possessions.
