Emergency preparedness for the deaf and blind

The best way to get evacuation updates is to listen to the radio, the TV or to call the state police. Dial 511 for evacuation information, or if you are disabled call 211 or the Easter Seals at 1-800-221-6827. Emergency preparedness information is often located on state or local government sites under either health & safety, transportation, or current /local residents. During an ongoing emergency it may be faster to use a search engine under the news tab. Current events: Hurricane news, Coastal flooding news and weather. If you would like to contribute routes you may post them to Wikipedia. (En Espanol)
