Emergency Preparedness: Work, School, and Community Disasters can happen at any time, in any place. While many people are prepared for emergencies at home, it’s also important to think about what you would do if an emergency occurred when you or your family was at work, school, or in the community. Talk with your employers or school administrators about their plans for emergencies. If you are creating a plan, be sure to keep
persons with disabilities in mind, and consider asking the local police or fire department to review your plan. For more information about preparing yourself for an emergency, visit http://do1thing.com.
