People With Special Needs
The “A” List. The building manager provided us with a list of senior citizens and disabled residents in each building. This became our "A-List' — the people we'd check on first. Everyone talked to their neighbors to make sure these people were ok.
For people with special needs, these sources provide detailed information on how to prepare. The Red Cross recommends establishing a personal network – individuals who will check with you in an emergency and give if assistance if needed.
Seven Important Items to Discuss, Give to and Practice with Your Personal Support Network:
1. Make arrangements, prior to an emergency, for your support network
to immediately check on you after a disaster and, if needed, offer assistance.
