Preparedness for specific groups

Specific disaster preparedness actions are advised for different populations with different needs. Learn the steps you should take if you are a caregiver to children, have a chronic illness, a disability, are pregnant or are a senior.

Disasters and emergencies come in many forms, and they may require anything from a brief absence from your home to permanent evacuation.

Have emergency contacts handy

Your contacts may be stored in your cell phone, but what happens when the battery runs out? Keep emergency communication contact information in your wallet to ensure you have the information you need to locate your loved ones. Keep a family disaster plan in your emergency kit.
