Do you have a patient or client who is blind, deaf, hard of hearing or has limited use of their vision that has struggled with having proper accessibility in emergency situations? It is possible that they do not have access to resources on how to prepare when these disasters occur. Now you can assist!

Free resources on Emergency Preparedness are now available online by the Northeast Texas Public Health District, including user friendly videos available in ASL with audible English voice-over and matching text that address topics such as Disaster Preparedness, Basic First Aid, and Infections Diseases. Materials are also available for download in Braille, large print and regular font.

Disasters do occur, and everyone should have an equal opportunity to be prepared. All the information and resources are at your disposal to help on this site, and we can assist with your individual communication needs.
