Checklist

Personal Disaster Plan for
Those Who May Need Additional Assistance

Home Kit

In some emergencies, you may be safer staying at home. You may not have water to drink or be able to flush the toilet. You may not have electricity to keep your food cold, turn on the light, or charge your phone.

Prepare a “Home Kit” to survive for at least three days without water or electricity.

Go Kit

Most disasters are unexpected and happen fast. You might not have time to shop or pack. Pack a “Go Kit” for when you must leave in a hurry.

Communition Tools

During an emergency, your normal way of communicating may be impacted by changes in environment, noise, service disruptions, or confusion.

If you are blind or have low vision, practice explaining to others how to guide you.

If you are Deaf or hard of hearing, find alternate ways to communicate your needs, such as through gestures, note cards, or text messages. Keep communication cards in your emergency supply kits.
