Emergency Preparedness

Being prepared for an emergency is always a good idea. Having a plan relieves a tremendous amount of stress. Although we can't prepare for every single possible scenario, we all can do something to make our situation easier or at least tolerable during an emergency.

People who have a disability or medical condition that requires special attention are in the best position to know what addtional steps they will need to manage until communication is restored, help arrives, or the emergency is over.

Those of us with hearing loss can take steps to prepare ourselves for a possible emergency situation. The following links will provide guidence to planning and preparing for a variety of possible events.

Some items you may consider having on hand, in addtion to recommended amounts of food and water are:

1. Extra hearing aid/CI batteries. Keep an extra pack or two and rotate them.

2. If you have hearing aids or CI that are old but still work or can be repaired, pack them in your "preparedness" bag. The ones you use on a daily basis may get wet, dropped or lost.

3. If you can benefit from a personal listener, have it (and a headset) handy, in the event you don't have access  your hearing aids...don't forget batteries for it.

4. You may consider a "hand crank" charger/ radio.

5. If you can manage a small portable generator, keep it charged and it may be just enough to keep you CI batteries, cell phone, radio, or rechargeable flashlight batteries charged

​Be sure you understand how to use your devices!
