Recent disasters across the nation highlight the lack of critical community-based planning for people with disabilities and aging population. Ensuring individuals and emergency personnel are prepared prior to a disaster is recognized by FEMA and state and local officials as a key to community resilience. The emergency planning process requires accurate and comprehensive information by seasoned experts and is essential to the implementation of a successful plan.
Proper planning persons with disabilities in an emergency helps ensure that families stay together with the assistive technologies they need to function independently. This protects natural support systems, and prevents or reduces the effects of acute medical conditions, allowing volunteer medical providers to conserve limited emergency-care resources.
