ER Preparedness: Special Needs of Residents

Emergency and Disaster Preparedness for Recovery Housing > ER Preparedness: Special Needs of Residents

 

Set aside time during resident move-in orientation to consider any special needs of the resident.  For example, if a resident has a mobility impairment and may need help leaving the home in case of a fire, make sure that others are aware and know they should help.  Or, if a resident has insulin that needs to be refrigerated, that you have a plan in case the power goes out and the fridge is not working.
