Emergency Preparedness Resources

Being prepared for emergencies of any kind often comes down to planning and anticipating yours and your family’s needs when daily life gets disrupted. As a disaster can dramatically affect your activities, personal emergency preparedness is essential.

This page offers a selection of emergency preparedness and responses resources, including ones for people with disabilities.

You may also reach out to your ADA Regional Center to obtain specific information about emergency preparedness in your region.
