Emergency kit for Evacuation for the Deaf, Blind and Service Animals

9/6/2022 (Permalink)

Low vision or hearing loss may make a power outage more difficult in Boulder and evacuation more challenging.

SERVPRO of Guelph has these tips:

Have an evacuation emergency kit ready.

For people who have low hearing or deafness, consider the following:

  • Extra batteries for hearing aids
  • TTY (teletypewriter)
  • If you Sign, have a pen and paper for people who do not know Sign
  • Backup batteries for any augmentative communication devices

For people who have low vision or blindness, consider the following:

  • Use large-print or Braille on labels
  • Magnifiers or other assistive devices
  • White cane (if you use one)

Storm damage makes life more difficult for service animals too.

For people who have service animals, consider the following: 

  • Food, water, and other supplies
  • Tell emergency responders that your service animal travels with you
  • Shelters and other buildings may not refuse entry to a service animal
