Emergency Preparedness for the Disabled

Print

The City of West Hollywood has a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) that includes community members with disabilities. CERT members have been trained in various techniques to help prepare for and respond to local disasters and larger scale emergencies. CERT members are encouraged to identify people with disabilities in their neighborhoods and determine the special needs of each individual. As part of their annual training, all CERT members participate in disaster preparedness drills. For more information on the CERT program, please call the City's Public Safety Division at (323) 848-6414.

The City distributes emergency preparedness information designed specifically for people with disabilities. Included in this packet is information on preparing an emergency checklist, a disaster supplies kit, an emergency plan, an evacuation plan, and a fire safety plan.
