Delaware Area MS Chat Friday: Emergency Preparedness

Topic: Are You Ready for Bad Weather?

Open conversation:  7:00 – 8:00

NOAA Weather Forecasters are calling for an "above average" hurricane season, which officially started on June 1st. 

Last August, we devoted a chat to emergency preparedness for people with disabilities, and I think it's time to dust off our emergency preparedness plans and make sure they are up to date.  Recently, I experienced a short power outage, and realized how much I have forgotten. 

Let's discuss what to do when really bad weather strikes. Are you prepared for a flood, hurricane, or heat wave? Can you manage if no one can get to you for several days? Let's discuss ideas for being ready for the un-predictability of our situation when the weather gets nasty. 

I'll share information received from last year's Delaware Emergency Preparedness Forum hosted by the University of Delaware's Center for Disabilities Studies.

Please come and share YOUR emergency plans.

If you are uncomfortable typing, you are still welcome to come and watch the conversation.

Although targeted to people living in the Delaware Area, these chats are open to anyone affected by MS.
