If you or someone close to you has a disability or exceptional needs, you should make special preparations in case of an emergency. Individuals with exceptional needs could have increased complications during an evacuation. Family members with physical, visual, hearing, or mental disabilities may need extra time or may be especially nervous or reluctant to leave familiar surroundings. They may also be dependent on devices or medications that need to travel with them. To adequately prepare for every possible emergency situation, consider making the following arrangements.
