Evacuate! Prepare for the call now

safety first program logoToday, finally, is the first full day of spring, and the winter storms most of us endured this year are over. At least I hope so! Watching the news this winter showed me what an ice storm can do to a community, cutting off communication, blocking roads and snapping power lines. It is more than inconvenient.

We are so dependent on electronic devices to manage everything from the heat in our home to communicating with family, medical personnel and friends. And whether it is the weather or a local disaster (we saw how a train derailment can also force families from their homes), you just can’t predict when people with disabilities may need to evacuate to be safe in a crisis.

That’s why Easter Seals developed s.a.f.e.t.y. first, a national public education campaign that includes a set of key questions and resources so that people with disabilities are included in planning for safety and evacuations. Check out s.a.f.e.t.y. first. It’s full of information I hope you’ll never need, but you’ll feel better knowing just in case. Be safe! Be prepared.
