Providing Valuable Information
April 21 - Disaster Preparedness for People with Hearing Loss
Lisa McNiven, Disability Consultant, Governor’s Commission on Disability and Roger Robb, N M Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
While many of us don’t think of ourselves as “disabled” we fall in to the category of citizens who have the potential to fall through the cracks during a disaster due to our hearing loss. Will we hear the sirens? Will we be able to understand the announcements on TV? Will we know when we need to evacuate due to some catastrophic event? Communication is critical during disasters, and hearing loss creates a barrier to the normal modes of reaching citizens. We are fortunate to have a serious advocate for those with hearing loss working for the Governor’s Commission on Disability. Disasters are something we never want to have to face but being prepared can give us some peace of mind. Join us for tips and techniques about preparedness.
