1MAKE APLANCREATE AN EMERGENCYSUPPORT NETWORKYou don’t want to go through an emergency alone.Ask at least two people to be in your network — familymembers, friends, neighbors, caregivers, coworkers,or members of community groups. Remember, you willhelp each other in emergencies.Your emergency support network should:Stay in contact during an emergency.Keep spare sets of your keys.Know where to find your emergency supplies.Know how to operate your equipment or help moveyou in an emergency.Support network contacts:Name/Relationship:Phone (home/work/cell):E-mail:Name/Relationship:Phone (home/work/cell):E-mail:Pick an out-of-state friend or relative who family orfriends can call during a disaster. If local phone linesare busy, long-distance calls may be easier to make.This out-of-state contact can help you communicatewith those in your network.Out-of-state contact:Name/Relationship:Phone (home/work/cell):E-mail:4

During anemergency, your normal way of communicatingmay be affected by changes in environment, noise,or confusion. Know how and what you will need tocommunicate during an emergency.If you are Deaf or hard of hearing, practicecommunicating your needs through gestures, notecards, text messages, or other means.If you are blind or have low vision, be prepared toexplain to others how best to guide you.6

Prepare something now that describes your needs inshort, meaningful phrases. You may not have much timeto get your message across. Prewritten cards or textmessages can help you share information during astressful or uncomfortable situation. Phrases can include:I may have difficulty understanding what you aretelling me. Please speak slowly and use simplelanguage.I use a device to communicate.I am Deaf and use American Sign Language.Please write down directions.I speak [insert language].Your cards should apply to emergencies in and outsideyour home. Be sure to keep them with you at all times.If you have difficulty creating cards, ask family, friends,or caregivers to help.Below is space for you to write your own phrases:7

3MAKE APLANKNOW HOW TOEVACUATEEvacuate immediately if your life is in danger.Evacuate immediately if you smell gas, or see smokeor fire.Call 911 if you are stranded and need emergencyassistance to evacuate your home.Remember to tune in to local radio and TV stations,access NYC.gov, or call 311 (TTY: 212-504-4115) for thelatest emergency information.Meeting PlaceKnow where you will meet family, friends, or caregiversafter an emergency.

They provide basic food and water.Shelters DO NOT have special equipment (e.g., oxygen,mobility aids, batteries). Be prepared to bring your own.Shelters are subject to change depending on theemergency.
