The following resources were developed by DPH to advance emergency preparedness for NH residents with disabilities.
- The C-MIST Personal Planning Tool assists individuals with disabilities to consider what specialized items to add to an emergency kit, and guides them through the creation of a personalized emergency plan.
- Including People with Disabilities in Emergency Planning and Preparedness is a resource packet for state and local emergency management personnel or others involved with the planning or provisions of emergency operations. The packet was developed from a request for technical assistance. These resources were used to create a catalog of training modules from which local and regional emergency personnel could select a customized menu of topics to be covered in in-person trainings.
- Creating Emergency Kits and Plans with People with Disabilities offers an interactive training curriculum that can be used to teach staff from disability organizations, family members, and people with disabilities how to be personally prepared for emergencies. During the training, participants review basic, modified, and specialized emergency supply kit items, and learn how to use the C-MIST Personal Planning Tool to make individual emergency plans.
- The Emergency Preparedness and You brochure reminds people with disabilities that disasters and emergencies can happen without warning, and provides tips on planning and preparedness.
