Hurricane Preparation Tips
We're almost halfway through hurricane season, and there's a hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean. So, now is the time for people with disabilities to think about how to prepare for hurricanes and other emergencies. First of all, you should gather information to help you make a plan. Then, discuss your plan with relatives and caregivers. Finally, assemble a kit with necessary items such as food and water, medications, and batteries. Review your plan, and maintain your kit on a regular basis.
