Have you thought about creating a disaster kit? The DAFN (Disability, Accessibility, and Functional Needs) Team at Humanity Road would like to invite you to join us in making a Disaster Kit to fit your needs. During a disaster, people who identify as having disabilities and/or functional needs, along with the very young and the elderly, are especially vulnerable. Our goal is that “No One Is Left Behind” in being prepared for both Natural or Man-made Disasters, and the first step in doing this is to build your own personalized disaster kit.
Items will be for specific health groups such as the visually impaired, seniors, diabetics and others. We hope that by separating the items by post you will be encouraged to build your kit until it is specific to your needs and your resolution is complete. Please remember these will just be suggestions as to what you may need either when you shelter at home or to fill an emergency bag, which is compact enough to be carried to an evacuation center. Your emergency supplies should last up to 14 days.
