LOCAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE COUNCIL

Handicapped/Elderly Preparedness

 

  • If you are visually impaired, tune your radio to a local station for audio Emergency Activation System information;
  • If you are hearing impaired, tune your television to a local channel for visual Emergency Activation System information;
  • If you hear sirens or see police and fire officials patrolling your neighborhood, contact neighbors to find out the nature of the emergency;
  • Neighborhoods and communities should establish "buddy systems" to assist handicapped individuals. This will help ensure individuals are safe or have received help in getting to an evacuation shelter;
  • Handicapped or wheelchair-bound persons should remain in their dwelling and implement the "AT HOME" (above) procedures until help reaches them. They should try to make telephone contact or in some way advise officials where they are located.
