The folks at OHSU have created a comprehensive emergency preparedness booklet for people with developmental disabilities called Ready Now. It walks you step-by-step through different emergency situations and helps you plan ahead to be ready in the event of an emergency. The booklet includes checklists for supplies, emergency contacts and more.
This is a great resource for customers, parents, providers and families. You’re sure to learn something you didn’t know and walk away with the tools you need to be prepared for an emergency. Check it out online here.
Thanks to Cynthia Owens for the tip.
