People with access and functional needs or disabilities may need to make special considerations when preparing for emergencies. Every individual has specific needs to be addressed before, during, and after disasters.
In addition to having your basic survival supplies, your emergency kit should contain items to help meet individual needs during an emergency. Consider the items you need on a daily basis and how you could build up extra supplies, substitute other supplies, or function with existing supplies during a disaster.
