Helping the Elderly or People with Special Needs Prepare for Disaster

Posted by on 4/19/2018 to Preparedness Tips
Don’t forget your elderly or special needs friends or family members, when planning your emergency disaster preparedness. Anyone with special needs may need assistance when preparing, so find out what special items they may need and stock up on these items. You can ask their doctors for an additional supply of needed medications. Some insurance companies don’t make allowances for disaster preparedness. But it is worth the extra money to have an extra supply of vital medications. Ask their doctor for assistance. Often times doctors have samples of some medications. 

At Emergency Preparedness Service 
we are able to help you with other “special” needs. We have contact with a number of medical suppliers that can provide items that are not currently on our website.

People with special needs also may need assistance evacuating during an emergency or disaster. Make arrange with other family members, friends or neighbors to assist you in making plans for anyone who is in need of help. Sometimes just having someone, check in with a person with special needs can do the trick.

Also, you can go to the local fire department and let them know about someone in need of assistance. They should make a note of anyone in the area that would not be able to help themselves. Ask the fire department to help you make plans for people with special needs.

If you have any questions, please email us at 
we will be happy to help you.

Household Preparedness

Posted by on 3/19/2018 to Preparedness Tips

Every home has areas that are safer than others during a disaster. Do a walkthrough of your home to identify and correct the following dangers:


·        Beds under windows. Move beds out from under windows that could break in a disaster.

·        Beds below heavy mirrors, framed pictures, hanging plants. Heavy objects can fall during a disaster.

·        Breakable or heavy objects on shelves. Consider a cabinet with latching doors. Use museum wax to secure fragile items in place

·        Loose latches, such as magnetic push latches on cabinets and cupboards. Cabinets can swing open during a disaster causing contents to spill

·        Glass bottles in medicine cabinets. Put glass containers on lower shelves or near the back.

·        Flammable materials close to heat sources. Painting or cleaning products should be stored in the garage or an outdoor shed.

·        Heavy or glass objects next to exits or escape routes in you home. Move them for easy exit.

·        Objects with wheels. These can roll during a disaster. Block the wheels.

·        Dead or diseased tree limbs near the house. Tree limbs can fall and damage the house or hurt people.

·        Brush, dry grasses or overhanging trees within forty feet of your house.

·        Unreinforced masonry that could fall during high winds or earthquakes (chimneys in particular).

Decide and discuss with your family where the safe and unsafe areas are in your home. Decide where you should meet inside and outside the home when disaster strikes.
