Emergency Preparedness

A wheelchair, an evacuation map, and a fire extinguisher.
TRPIL encourages all to take the time to be prepared in an emergency. Now is the time to plan ahead for what you may need to stay safe, healthy, informed, mobile, and independent during a disaster. Remember that a disaster may require sheltering-in-place at home, evacuating to an emergency shelter, or another form of temporary housing.

In addition to Ready.gov’s recommended items to include in a basic emergency supply kit (see Get Ready Kit ), people with disabilities and other access and functional needs may wish to consider the information on our Emergency Planning page in their preparations.

Also, Transitional Paths to Independent Living is working with local first-responders (police, fire, and EMS), exchanging information and experience, in order to develop a better understanding of the needs of people with disabilities in emergency situations. The recent fire at the Washington Arbors apartment building in December 2014 has helped spur our resolve in this effort.

So far, we’ve held training sessions and have had productive meetings with representatives from the Red Cross, various nearby fire and police departments, the Washington County commissioners’, and local legislators, with more training sessions and meetings scheduled in the near future.

Have you experienced an emergency situation in the past? Let us know what obstacles and opportunities you noticed by calling us at 724.223.5115.
