Guide to emergency preparedness available for people with disabilities

With concerns about a flu pandemic on the horizon, the Minnesota State Council on Disability has prepared a 20-page guide to emergency preparedness for people with disabilities.

The booklet stresses preparation in case of evacuation or long-periods of isolation during a disaster. It is printed on water-resistant paper.

MSCOD also has a tool-kit for employers who want to prepare an emergency plan that addresses disability issues.

For information on getting copies, contact Margot Imdieke Cross at MSCOD: 651-361-7802 or 1-800-945-8913.
