    • 51. Disaster Tips for People with Medical Needs
      • Oxygen and breathing equipment
      • If you use oxygen, maintain an emergency supply (enough for at least three day period)
      • Oxygen tanks should be securely braced so they do not fall over. Call your medical supply company regarding bracing instructions
      • If you use breathing equipment, keep a three day supply or more of tubing, solutions, medications etc
      • Intravenous (IV) and feeding tube equipment
      • Know if your infusion pump has battery backup and how long it would last in an emergency
      • Ask your home care provider about manual infusion techniques in case of power outage
      • Attach written operating instructions to all equipment
    • 52. Disaster Tips for People with Medical Needs
      • Emergency Bag
      • In the event that you have to leave your home, keep a bag packed at all times that contain
        • A medications list
        • Medical Supplies for at least three days
        • Copies of vital medical papers such as insurance cards, power of attorney, etc, in a waterproof bag
      • People who can help
      • An important part of being prepared for a disaster is planning with family, friends and neighbors. Know who could walk to your home to assist you if other means of transportation are unavailable
      • Discuss your disaster plans with your home health care provider
      • Ask your local fire department if they keep a list of people with special needs; ask to be included if they do maintain a list
      • Keep a list of people who can help and their phone numbers
    • 53. Disaster Tips for People with Mobility Disabilities
      • Storage
      • Store emergency supplies in a pack or backpack attached to a walker, wheelchair, scooter etc
      • Store needed mobility aids (canes, crutches, walkers, wheel chairs) close to you in a consistent, convenient and secured location. Keep extra aids in several locations
      • Emergency Supply Kit
      • Keep a pair of heavy gloves in your supply kit to use while wheeling or making your way over glass or debris
      • If you use a motorized wheelchair or scooter, consider having an extra battery available. A car battery can be substituted for a wheelchair battery, but this type of battery will not last as long as wheelchair's deep-cycle battery. Check with your vendor to see if you will be able to charge batteries by either connecting jumper cables to a vehicle battery or by connecting batteries to a specific type of converter that plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter in the event of loss of electricity
    • 54. Disaster Tips for People with Mobility Disabilities
      • Emergency Supply Kit Cont.
      • If your chair does not have puncture-proof tires, keep a patch kit or can of "seal-in-air-product" to repair flat tires, or keep an extra supply of inner tubes
      • Store light weight manual wheelchair, if available
      • Arrange and secure furniture and other items to provide paths of travel and barrier-free passages
      • If you spend time above the first floor of a building with and elevator, plan and practice using alternative methods of evacuation. If needed, enlist the help of your personal support network
      • If you can not use stairs, discuss lifting and carrying techniques that will work for you. There will be instances where wheelchair users will have to leave their chairs behind in order to safely evacuate a structure
      • Sometimes transporting someone downstairs is not a practical solution unless there are at least two people to control the chair. Therefore, it is very important to discuss the safest way to transport you if you need to be carried, and alert them to any areas of vulnerability. For example, the traditional "Fire-Fighters carry" may be hazardous for some people with respiratory weakness

      • During Heavy Rains...
      • Listen to radio and TV stations for most current information
      • Know what streams, bayous, drainage channels and creeks are prone to flood in your immediate area
      • Avoid going to near flood areas. The water depth is unknown
      • Do not drive into flooded streets. Water depth is unknown and conditions of the roadway may not be certain.
      • Know how and when to evacuate from your immediate Area before it's too late
      • If advised to evacuate, do so immediately
    • 56.
      • If you have to evacuate...
      • Make sure your gas tank is full
      • Prepare your vehicle for what could be a very long ride. Stock your vehicle with necessities such as water, food, pillows, blankets, toilet paper, current maps, baby supplies, pet supplies, prescription medicine and cash.
      • Bring proof of residency- your drivers license, a utility bill or rent receipt - incase if you need Red Cross or FEMA assistance
      • Take your emergency kit with you.
    • 57.
      • During a power outage...
      • Turn off lights and electrical appliances except for the refrigerator and freezer.
      • Even if it is dark, turn light switches and buttons on lamps or appliances to the "off" position.
      • Leave one lamp on so you will know when power is restored.
      • Wait at least 15 minutes after power is restored before turning on other appliances.
      • Unplug computers and other sensitive equipment to protect them from possible surges when the power is restored
      • Converse water.
      • Never use gas ovens, gas ranges, barbeques or propane heaters for indoor heating - they use oxygen and create carbon monoxide that can cause suffocation
      • Candles can cause a fire. It is far better to use battery - operated flashlights or glow sticks for lighting
      • Stay away from downed power lines and sagging trees with broken limbs
    • 58.
      • Keep food safe…
      • Use and store food carefully to prevent food-borne illness when power outages make refrigeration unavailable.
      • Use foods first that can spoil most rapidly
      • Keep doors to refrigerators and freezers closed. Your refrigerator's freezer will keep food frozen for up to a day. A separate fully loaded freezer will keep food frozen for two days
      • Use and ice chest packed with ice to keep food cold. Buy dry ice to save frozen food. Do not handle dry ice with your bare hands. Use blocks or bags of ice to save refrigerator foods
      • If in doubt, throw it out. Throw out meat, seafood, dairy products and cooked food that does not feel cold
      • Never taste suspect food. Even if food looks and smells fine, illness-causing bacteria may be present.
