Led by UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, Region V for Kids, covering the Midwest, is a federally-funded grant program focusing on improving pediatric and family disaster preparedness. Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes from floods, bad weather conditions and other threats that can present at home or at school without warning. Families with children and youth with disabilities and special medical needs are known to be some of the most vulnerable in a disaster. When families are prepared and disaster-ready, it can make all the difference. Join pediatric experts Dr. Deanna Dahl-Grove and Nellie Coughlin, CNP for an informative webinar on family emergency preparedness. They will provide a framework for families to Be Ready which can help save precious minutes when an emergency strikes. They will cover topics to think about, a sample emergency kit checklist and how to plan specifically for your family including information for families with children who have disabilities or other special needs.
