This guide provides information on preparing an emergency plan and kit for people with disabilities/special needs and for caregivers. The publication acknowledges that while disasters and emergencies affect everyone, their impact on people with disabilities/special needs is often compounded by factors such as reliance on electrical power, elevators, accessible transportation and accessible communication - all of which can be compromised in emergency situations.
This guide identifies disabilities/special needs as separate categories according to a specific colour shown on each section. Its sections provide a list of suggested emergency kit items and planning tips for individuals and caregivers according to specific disabilities/special needs
