Elderly and Persons With Special Needs:

  • Persons with mobility difficulties and or special health needs, including the elderly should contact their home health care provider for assistance, otherwise notify a neighbor or relative.
  • When weather is threatening, make arrangements ahead of time to relocate to your emergency contact’s home early so that people will not be traveling during the most risky conditions.
  • Be sure to keep extra wheelchair batteries, oxygen and other medical supplies on hand. Prepare a list of the style and serial numbers of medical devices such as pacemakers.
  • The media will have information on any selected shelters that are reserved for special medical needs.
