Be Prepared for Earthquakes and other Natural Disasters

______________________________________________________

The earthquakes last week in California were scary for everyone. But they had to be particularly terrifying for wheelchair-users and others with mobility difficulties.

Everyone should have a plan for managing floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters. But those of us who are more at risk have a special responsibility – to ourselves and our loved ones – to plan ahead.

Fortunately, there are resources available, like the ones cited in this post. And don’t be afraid to ask for help!
