Will I be notified of a pending disaster?

Division of Emergency Management will make every effort of contacting the Special Needs client should a disaster be pending or occurring in their area. The Special Needs client may be asked to prepare to evacuate to a shelter if time permits or should the disaster be of a hazardous type incident they may be advised to shelter in place. Depending on what type of disaster and time, notification may occur through individual telephone calls, local media, emergency responders and / or Reverse 911 (high speed citizen notification system).
