Planning For Special Needs

Planning for Additional Preparedness Needs


For those British Columbians who have physical, medical, sensory or cognitive disabilities, planning and preparing for emergencies and natural disasters can present additional challenges. Similar challenges may also apply to elderly people and populations that have specific needs. Reaching out to those in your lives who may need extra assistance - whether they are family, friends or neighbours - will go a long way in helping them plan for an emergency.
