Think Ahead and Prepare for Natural Disasters

It’s so easy to assume that “nothing can be done” for people with disabilities, especially in emergency situations. That makes it easy for those of us with disabilities to start believing that, too.

But there’s a lot that can in fact be done to prepare for emergencies, such as putting together supply kits, keeping vital phone numbers at the ready, regularly changing batteries for mobility devices or hearing aids, making sure your friends and family know how to contact you, etc.

As recently mentioned, the ADATA Center has tremendous amounts of information about all of this. They also have webinars and podcasts on the subject – all for free.

Check out the link below for more information. And be prepared!
