About Emergency Preparedness

Planning is a key factor in emergency situations such as tornados, hurricanes, ice storms, or fires. Disaster preparedness is important regardless of gender, race, age, or disability. However, those with disabilities may require extra planning. Over the past several months, families have weathered many storms from tornados to COVID-19. The Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs section of Family Health and Wellness developed emergency alert decals, magnets, and toolkits to assist families across TN.
